Hello, my friends! Greetings from Nanchang! Roaming from one city to another, one drawback is short on time for blogging regularly, my apologies!
“Lonesome crane flies alongside the sunset, peaceful river blends into the end of the sky” (落霞与孤鹜齐飞，秋水共长天一色）– if you have studied in China like I did back in high school, you would have learned this King Teng’s Pagoda by Bo Wang, a famous poet from the Tang Dynasty. The poem described the beautiful nature surrounded the pagoda as well as the grandness of King Teng’s banquet. Today, there is no more parties for the selected few happening in this magnificent architecture, it is available, however, for millions to come and admire its beauty.
The main building has seven levels, it is a fairly easy hike to get to the top one. Even though it is no longer the tallest building in Nanchang anymore, the view of the river and the new development of the city is quite nice. Years ago, I visited the pagoda with my classmate, then there was no this thick smock, we could really see the sunset and variation of colors as described in the poem. Today, one will be able to figure of the outlines of some building across the river at best. 🙁
For the city is known for its hot summer, I brought my lightest clothing with me, including this silk pajama set. When worn together, it looks more like a jumpsuit. I also found these very cool wrapping bracelets at the Hong Qiao Pearl Market in Beijing last week, thought it would be good match with the pajama and straw hat if worn a few together, what do you think?
Thank you very much for reading! Onto the next city I went! I will try my best to post often. See you in my next post!
