Details
Xitang is a typical water town in the South.Early in the morning,the town is covered in a light mist like fairy's long skirt coming down from heaven that's moving in the wind more tenderly than yarn.The smoke from kitchen chimneys of local families curves upwards and disperses and disappears in the sun and in the tresses.The silence of the dawn is broken by people's voices.Doors are opened. Someone walks along the narrow lane,makes a turn anddisappears.Some girls dance to the riverside with buckets to wash,laughter flying over the water.As dusk draws near,rosy clouds are mirrored in every river,turning the shining water into a palette to make diversified and gorgeous colors.Wood boats that look old are often seen flying freely over the water with easygoing fishermen smoking on the fore and the cormorants walking up and down on the aft.
