Last Saturday I met with a high school classmate and we visited the Humble Administrator’s Garden (Zhuozheng Yuan) together with our kids.
Ying and I were in the same class during our last year in high school. We both went to universities in Beijing. I majored in German and she majored in English. We both have lived in the US for almost 20 years. I live in Minnesota and she lives in California. We haven’t seen each other for over 20 years until now. We happen to be back in our hometown at the same time for a vacation.
We could recognize each other instantly. Not too much has changed with us. She said she could recognize me from the distance from the way I walk. I must have a unique way of walking. I don’t know.
Zhuozheng Yuan is one of the four most famous gardens in Suzhou. It is full of toursits. Right now the water lilies are in bloom. They are beautiful.
