Okay. So you should know I took A LOT of pictures of the Xixi Wetlands in Hangzhou. For a very low fee of RMB80 I got to see a lot of damn trees. But that’s not the real reason why I took a lot of pictures. It’s because lately, I’ve been feeling a bit artistic. Trying to be artistic anyways.
I have no creative cells within me.
First impressions of this place? fucking huge. Like really huge. We only had a couple of hours to spend here, and trust me it ain’t enough. Like all things in China, overkill. This place is overkill.
Overkill in terms of preserving nature at it’s finest form. Which is actually a good thing. But yeah, budget a whole day if you want to see the entire Xixi wet lands.
Um, this one is pretty spooky.
The Chinese place safety as a priority for it’s visitors. And as such we saw a shitload of safety signs during our 2 hour walk through the wetlands:
- Depth of water safety first
- Warning falling into water
The first safety tip just kills me =)
“Warm tips”. Feel so warm. Also, interesting how the last warning point did not have an english transition. The guy making this sign probably thought the third and fourth point is more or less the same.
So he said……
Depth of water, safety first.
What the fuck does that even mean.
Okay enough of the safety signs. Here’s some more photos of the wetlands:
The heat was blazing on this day. I was dying. My colleague was really, REALLY dying. Basically did not see her face the entire time.
During the walk we came across some pretty cool old buildings. Went inside, and saw some perfectly conditioned furniture.
Wonder if someone actually uses this shit. It’s so brand new.
Pretty bad ass front yard if you ask me.
We had a great time walking around the wetlands, getting lost. The sun was a total bitch to us but nothing is ever perfect in life. Especially my life.
Wow so negative.
