China Memory 2 江南



It is not that easy as I thought to do this China Memory Series. Emotions are rushing up and down , and it is so hard to put all my feelings into words.
I dreamt of 江南, the southern China, when I was young living in the Northen China. I had been always imagining what "鱼米之乡(the land of fish and rice)" looks like, and how about 平湖秋月 (autumn moon on lake)? It is a pity that I had never been living in Southern China, so, it is still my dream land. Thanks Yoli, your music is the inspiration for this post .

I love this picture of Iza, and the patten of fabric and the design of the blouse is very chinese, ......so beautiful!!! Yes, I do love contemporary chinese design with a trace of accent of the tradional style. Anyway, she looks exactly and perfectly like the girl in my little chinese movie 江南(South of River) , which was showing on in my little head long time ago:)
The first three pictures are credit to my chinese blog friend 寂寞在唱歌。Many thanks!!!

You are welcomed. China will never leave me.I carry it with me through my children and in my heart. I came home but part of my heart remains there with its people.

The pictures are beautiful! I hope that you are not too homesick whilst posting these beautiful pictures. It's funny how a place you've never lived can seem like the perfect place....I am trying to think where my perfect place would be.....
