Su Zhou

I am traveling again. I took a 5 hours super fast train ride today. Talking about the high speed trains, I must say that China is more advanced than the United States. The conditions are superb. The stations are well built. Much better than Amtrak.

I have arrived at a beautiful south China city called Su Zhou. This trip is basically for me to search future places I would like to paint and may run plein air painting workshops at. I will visit a few places like this one. I like small towns, trying to avoid big crowd. Find a place to slow down. Zu Zhou is very different from Beijing. People are living around many water alleys. If you like Venice or San Antonio, you will like here too.

What a lovely and unique scene: very intriguing with those greys and reflections.

Hi Qiang. You must visit the Zili Village (Kaiping) near Jiangmen. It is a wonderful place to paint. I was there in 2010 and wish to return soon. Good travels to you....Jim
