Maybe it can't be accounted as a film projector, but a slide projector. People just sit on the chair and look in to the hole as you can see in the picture. And the guy in the photo, he is the projectionist as well as the narrator. I think it's a good idea to watch a "movie" like this, if you are sick of sitting in a cenema and staring at the big screem.

Can you guess what are those scorpions used for? OK, please don't say it's disgusting, it is used to eat. Yes, first, they will be fried and then be eaten. It's really delicious, actually, crispy and contains proteins, so I think it's really nutritious. Do you wanna try it?

It's summer here, so it's a season for some beverage companys to launch a new campaign of publicity for their new products. Here is the "Nestle" site to provide free ice tea for people. It should be the exicting moment for the children, but here in the photo, the father seems more curious than his child. Maybe this kid is murmuring , "Dad, are you still a kid, when can I get home?" Haha~just kidding~
PS: Can you see this guy holding a bottle of ice tea on the paperboard. He is Jacky Chen's son. He and his father are both representatives of this new kind of ice tea. So I guess "Nestle" has thrown a lot of money on its advirtisment.

I don't know how to say it in English, maybe colourful clay figurine? Anyway, is it cute? I always admire those handcrafters. Their hands are so incredible that they can make anything they want. In this photo, there are Monkey King, 7 fairies, 12 zodiacal animals, etc. They are so animated and lively, actually, when I was young I used to use them to play puppet show.

I don't know whether it can be accounted as an open-air theatre. Actually most of the performers are amateurs. They just spontaneously gather together every weekend near the West Lake, and sing or perform whatever they like. But most of them are singing some local operas, like Yue Opera, or Peking Opera. And the strange thing is that those performers dare to sing in front of so many people, but most of them are too shy to be taken photoes. That's why I can only shoot behind this woman's back.
Also as you can see in this photo, they have a "band", is it cool. Likely, most of instruments are Chinese tranditional instruments, such as erhu, but I can't name all of them. To my surprise, maybe you can't see in this photo, there are actually someone playing cello. Can I call it a combination of the west and the east.

This is a Chinese resturant locating near the Grand Canal. The building shapes a big pavilion, but the inside has much more than that.
I love the sweet and sour fillet and the quick-fried shredded beef there, hmmm, yummy.

Look at this photo, it's a historical street under the protection of the local goverment, the photo was taken during the spring festival, these houses have been existed for more than half a century, but now they were teard down. (they may look a little ugly, but should have been preserved..)
take a close look I bet you are curious about the mirror hanging on the wall of each household, people say that in the ancient times, mirror can keep the ghosts away from your family.
pretty superstitious, but sometimes there are things modern science cannot explain.
It's another gloomy day here in Hangzhou, so here's hoping no matter where you are, keep a sunny feeling at least.

This is a map of Hangzhou. It is carved on floor, so many people will step on it and find the places of where they live now. However because the map is about the Hangzhou in ancient time, so many roads on map can no longer be found , but some of them are still existing, like the road where my home locates.
PS: Hope the girl in the photo can find her home. :)

Can you guess what's the man in the picture doing? Aha~ The answer is ---he is making sugar, or indeed, he is "drawing" sugar. Is it funny? Don't think it is easy, actually, it's difficult because he should finish his work in one stroke. And can you see the thing like compass in the photo, this is for customers to choose what he draws, like mouse, dragon, phoenix... Look how curious the children are. So am I.

This is a fans shop located on Wushan Square. Since Song dynasty, China began to produce folding fans, most of which are made of paper sticking around, and seldom are silk. It's very convient to use those folding fans, moreover, they make women look more elegant and beautiful, especially matched with Chi-pao.
So, do you like it?

I've been using old photos for a while, and this should be the last.
This photo was taken when I was still a sophomore, and indeed, a really funny picture. Because what was shown on the big screen , which is the professor's, was supposed to be the same with those on students' computers. Take a close look, you'll find that's not the case at all...
but I'm really not in a position to say anything about these students, as you can see, I was not with the professor too...

This is a phamacy located in Wushan Square in Hangzhou. It sells Tranditional Chinese Medicine (most of them are herbal medicine). The phamacy was established in 1649, enjoying great popularity among people in Hangzhou for its good credit and high quality. This phamacy still keeps the ancient Chinese architectual style, and is still popular.
PS: Every summer, my gramma will buy some herbal tea there for me to eliminate the buring hot in summer. So, besides using air conditionings, what's your way to stay cool in summer?
