A day out in Shaoxing

To celebrate the end of regular classes and assessments, yesterday our Chinese department led a day trip to nearby Shaoxing, one of the quaint Jiangnan water towns, famous for its 臭豆腐 and its dark brown wine. In the morning we visited the ancestral home of the great writer Lu Xun, and in the afternoon went to the beautiful Shen Garden, celebrated as one of the most romantic places in China through its association with Song Dynasty lovers Lu You and Tang Wan.
