   I am finally at Broken Bridge!


I was dreamed of coming Broken Bridge for many years since i heard  the Chinese folk story "The Legend of Lady Snake White".
I don't know how to describe the feeling but i was so happy and excited coz i was walking through the bridge and it feels so good. But just so many people there though.
I really like the first photo i took, the Bride and the willow, the lake, it is the heaven of China.

   Deep connection with Hangzhou !


It`s so so nice to come here without the croweds, the lake and the people here give a special feeling. Every time i come to Hangzhou the only thing i can feel is relaxed. I really hope i can get a small house with a view of the lake and i will stay here forever.
