I was at Yaojiang building yesterday and this photo was taken at the third floor when we came out of a malfunctioned elevator. Two of us got trapped, the elevator just stuck there at the fouth floor, it doesn't go down, just stuck there, so nothing scared, but both of us have the feeling of reborn after we stepped out of it.
We gave each other a hug and then left for our own homes.
I was at Yaojiang Building's elevator waiting room, the luminare happened to be "power off", so I had to wait in, as you can see, extreme darkness, and out came my camera-- "ka-tsa", cool , good to see no ghost dancing in my photo.

I toured lots of Hutongs in Beijing, and here are some pictures with their interesting stories. These plants' photos were taken at the gates of several Hutong households.

Actually this photo was added later, it just occured to me this is the 100th post of HZDP, and it might be a little pity if we just upload two photos of other cities, so I asked my friend to send me one Hangzhou photo that he can be proud of, here it is! Hangzhou is always so beautiful, right?
Two foreign tourists pointed on two fans(made of wood), and typed "60" at a small calculator.(Vendors can't speak numbers in English, they only know "yes, no, you're joking, bottom, ok, thank you...")
The vendor then put on a really surprised expression and said "You are kidding, you like jokes" , typing "208" at the calculator. "Bottom"
And then goes several rounds of price typing..
(5 minutes later)
The two tourists looked at her angry face for a while as if they just did something wrong to her and said "Ok."
Well, the truth is we can buy them at 40 yuan , 40 for two.
And some tourists are more interested in bargaining than the product.A funny student tourist, always typing "1" at the calculator for all kinds of products, and then raise the price little by little.
He was just having fun while bargaining. Vendors' tones and facial expressions do change greatly with your price.

Bad news: Liu has quit the game.(Ok, we are looking forward to 2012:).
My friend has sold his tickets of the final.
Good news: I'll pay another visit to my high school teacher and then go home soon, see you later
Er, sorry to say my plan gotta be changed, I'll stay at my teacher's place for another 4 days. But I just logged on your site! It seems my pc has stopped its "strike".
And Akira will continue to send me photos about Hangzhou, so everything's gonna be back to normal.

Sorry to say it's another photo out of Hangzhou, both of us have been lazy shooting pictures, Akira's is Canon EOS, also extremely heavy.
Sometimes we really need to think again before we buy some white elephants. Mmmmm....

Just took at a look those online votes about cities in China, funny to find that Hangzhou is the laziest city, labeled "idle", and the third favourite tourist city in view of "foreigners".
If you want to visit China, be ready to receive attention, partly because the "openning-up" process has just started less than two decades, (mostly because this is a single race nation, so it's very different from countries by immigrate population) and that's why lots of citizens(especially senior citizens) have never seen a foreign visitor with a different skin color, please don't be ill at ease, they are just curious and I'm sure that's friendly
This is again the same sunset and sunrise. Difficult to tell which is which, I mistaked the sunset for the sunrise.

Sticky Kids, job-hoppings, frenzies of emotion... Here's an inflated young generation
"A tiny piece of leaf, floating in a sea of leaves, you're nothing special. " as those ancient philosophers always said.
photo taken @ last fall by Akira, he will help with HZDP's photos until I receive my D80 and know how to use it well.
