Early rise, elbowed my way through the Metro rush hour and waited with the crowd for the train to arrive. Short nap, waking up, miming session with the Taxi driver. “Canals, Water… errr” I actually had to make him a drawing… And I’m not very good at that… After the busy morning, Suzhou revealed itself in all its splendor. Little canals and nice benches to relax, gazing at the reflection of the water. The facade of the place very neatly arranged, with Chinese motifs all around. But that wasn’t enough for me… At first chance, I turned into an alleyway and I got completely lost. My temporary “neighbors” looked quite surprised to see me there, and greeted me sometimes… Rambling around, I even got chased by some very territorial canine friends… Oh well, it was quite worth the stroll!
