LU Shan is near my hometown. But I did not come to until 2009 with the clients from England.There are hundreds of Villas here.The British Churchman Edward Little, Chinese name Li de Li and his family. He built them on the mountain. He is the earliest real estate business man.they are beatiful houses like yours. Many governors ever lived in there. Like Chairman Mao and Chiang Kai-shek, Leader of the two party.It is very cool in the summer.
Old US Church. some time use for wedding ceremony. most for visiting.

This took her five years to finsh. She thought out the name of the book soon before it set about to publish.
She lived back in USA in 1934 for the reason of back condition in China and missing her child in the US.She remarried in 1935 with a publisher.
