I love how these gardens are made, they are a beautiful combination of sculpted rocks, old Chinese style architecture and wood, always surrounding the water. It's a nice place to walk around and stop to observe the particularities of the garden, let it all sink in, sit down and observe.

It's cloudy today. I'm glad to date a person, who is the style that I want. We walk along the several streets and chat happy. At the clock of four and a half we separated by going back home.

Suzhou Gardens has over 100 years history and still kept very well. This garden's owner was a rich man but now it belongs to government property. It is natural rock, lake and trees and you felt very casual and relax.

BEAUTIFUL!!! go there and have a look by yourself, it's hard to describe the place, as the effect has to touch yourself.. Most of the time, a young woman is riding a small boat in the middle of the garden and playing music and singing. Find yourself a spot to sit down and listen her play.
