I love the scenery surrounding the Great Wall of China...and that boat (sorry if I am incorrect)but it looked like a beautiful carved (?) boat...however that ride thingy looked rather frightening to me...a wee bit high...a wee bit of nothing...Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful photos Candace...it's me, Cathie, again...I had to check out every corner of your blog...so yes, I am still here posting...

  5. Cathie: The scenery there was amazing. It's actually pretty amazing everywhere even in the city. I've never seen so many apartment buildings so closely packed together than I have while in Hangzhou and Shanghai.
    I think it's a carved boat, there were giant dragon boats that were docking near it, it was pretty cool to see.

  7. Nora: Thanks! Yeah, I felt that they were too pretty to be called weeds. =D

    No, I didn't go. Kev didn't want to and we still had to try and find that post office. Which we later discovered that we were looking at the wrong side of the street. -.-;
