    So glad to meet you here Treue!

    Oh, I know Foshan’s porcelain is very good, That’s just near GuangZhou. One of my friend also own a porcelain workshop here.

    I think you will enjoy your tour around Guangzhou too, specially during the new spring festival, there are many traditional performs too!

    Beautiful photos! I especially like the 4th photo of the purple flowers and the last two photos!

    The Chinese have 2 calendars right? The solar calendar and the lunar calendar. The 1st day of new year on 26th Jan is following the lunar calendar, right?

    Wow, that’s just beautiful. I love spring, everything about it is so lively; the smell of flowers in the air, the bright colors of all sorts of flowers. It just symbolizes a new fresh beginning for me and brings hope in my heart and an unexplainable joy. Maybe I’m weird but that’s the effect spring has on me.

    I’m in South Africa, so our spring only starts in September.
