Last weekend was Tomb Sweeping Day. I travelled to Shanghai with my parents. We went to a tourist spot called Zhujiajiao. It is a typical ancient Southern town of China that still keeps ancient buildings and architectural style of last century. There are many narrow paths along the river. Paths are conneted by bridges. In the southern regions, there used to be many rivers and hills rather than plains. The main transportation is boat.
When we visited the town, the weather was not good; it was raining. The path was too narrow. My umbrella collided with passers-by. Due to the development of economics, most of the towns in southern regions turned into modern cities. Ancient tows like Zhujiajian have hardly been found. Regretfully, driven by interests, such kind of towns is flooded by shops and restaurants, losing its peaceful beauty.
It was interesting to have a lunch in the restaurant along the river. When we were eating, there were boats floating on the water.
