Just outside our gates, you can take walks among the farmfields, ride a horse cart through the village and down toward the lake, or explore the streets and alleys where families still live in centuries old homes. We know that the traditional China still exists beneath the concrete veneer of the country’s urbanization- we happily live it every day.
