Well, I'm free now, a single man again. It is sunny today in the morning, however, sometimes, big cloud will block the sunlight. So I went out again, this time, a whole day, feel so tired now. I didn't take too much photos today, since the battery is nearly out of power and I only took those attracted me. Hehe. Well, let's see what I took today.
I went to buy a visiting card firstly, with which I can visit many scenic spots with no more pay. It is near the West lake, and you know there are so many scenic spots around the lake. So I borrowed the public bike to go to the nearby scenic spots. I went to the Liu He(six harmonies) tower firstly. It was built in 970 and 59.89 meters in height, with 13 floors. It was used for navigation in the acient time. Do you still remember Qiantang river? Yeah, just for the boats in the Qiantang river.
I found a long bridge on the West Lake nearby. It was built several years ago, very new. But from this, you can see the level of the water is stable.
Near the Liu He tower, there is a lake, in which there are so many red fish and turtles. You know in China, monks and rich people will free captive animals such as fish or turtles in the nearby pool or lake. I saw so many turtles in the nearby pool, seems terrible. The turtles love bread very much, that's why so many turtles gathered together.
Then I went to the Wu hill. Actually, I only visited some place at the foot of Wu hill. There is a building with 6 floors. You can buy flowers, pets,Chinese medicines and old collections here. I saw spiders and snakes too in the market.
This is only one corner of the flower floor. It is really an intereting building with so many interesting goods,if you come to Hangzhou, I suggest you visit it.
Near the building, there is a street called He Fang street. Some ancient foods and artificial goods are sold.

Your photos are so beautiful! I like the name Liu He (six harmonies) It sounds lovely! Many Americans like turtles and fish. We would be glad to go to a lake to see them and feed them. It is a peaceful past time and one that does not cost too much money to do. Thank you so much for sharing these lovely sights with us! - CG

Once again you have shown some amazing pictures. Makes me want to come visit China. My daughterloves turtles. I cant wait to show her these pictures. I really liked that bridge/pathway. It was so unique looking. Not like a bridge at all, more like a sidewalk on water. Thaks for sharing. Looking forward to your next adventure. Keep us posted.
