Rooftop View

I took the photo at the rooftop of our apartment several days ago, walked around for a while and sat down near a solar energy thermal board, huhu, don't worry, it's not dangerous at all, didn't know it's so interesting to hold a panoramic view of the place you walk through everyday~
And yes, good news for drivers these days as the gas prices continue to plummet, but...we still prefer more walk and I ride to my college everday on that road, the one you see in this photo, 20 minutes ride everday and that keeps me away from obesity and sickness.
What about you? Still driving to a local store that only reqire 10 minutes walk?
Take a rest and have a nice weekend~~~

It does put a different perspective on things, looking at them from a different angle (obviously!).

I thankfully have managed to avoid hideously high petrol prices by living close to work & shops.

lovely overview of your area!

Looks like Hangzhou is also densely populated. How's the air? Manila's pollution — and the fact that sidewalks are non-existent in some areas — is the only thing that would keep me from walking everywhere. But that's only along major roads. Inside our campus (yes, I work in a university, but not as faculty) and in my neighborhood, I walk a lot. Oh, and rains! Especially when it's strong enough to cause flash floods. Who wants to walk in yicky, dirty water?

Tr3nta,
Yes, I used the reverse picture technique and some blue-green filter.

Hilda,
Hangzhou is pretty clean in air, compared to other cities in China. It's a tourist city, not a industrial city.
Yes, I agree with you, when it rains, I get kinda lazy and just stay at home, but the air after rain would be even cleaner. So not that bad..

I sold my car! Walking, some metro, some biking.. is much better!
