Uncategorized, Yixing YIXING: wandering around 26 October 2009

Spent the morning wandering around and walked from our hotel alllll the way around the (huge) lake, and back via the shopping streets. I walked until my legs were so sore!! Great bum & thigh work out, I guess πŸ˜‰

It was a blissfully perfect day with sunny skies and not too many people around, which meant I could just walk around and enjoy the sights of Yixing. No one bumping or pushing me, no one calling out at me, no one hustling me to buy stuff. So refreshing πŸ™‚ Yixing’s a really lovely city – nice and small and the people are very friendly. A lot more laid back than in Shanghai and a wonderful way to spend the weekend!

Wandering down some local street in Yixing

Okay so it looks quite busy, but the other streets were so empty!

Pretty park with not a person in sight


Yeah, that was a lame jump

Video of me talking and talking and talking….

Climbing to the top!

Video of me rambling some more, but you can barely hear it thanks to the wind!

Stone sculptures of regular olden Yixing life

Pretty! And hardly any people! Awesome.

Playboy black leather boots. They look FANTASTIC on πŸ˜€
