The Road

This is the road leading to our new apartment, at dusk. The apartment complex we live in is visible through the trees on the left. The road that circles the Lake Gardens is lined with old Rain Trees, whose branches reach across the road to form a natural green arch, the tips of which dip into the lake.

I had just finished running drama practice, and was sitting near the boathouse, waiting for my wife. She is the figure in black you can see in the picture if you enlarge it. We are going to walk into town to the hawker stalls, and get something to eat. Since it is Qing Ming, the day that the Chinese go to tend their ancestors graves and leave offerings, most of the Chinese hawker stalls will be closed.

Afterwards, we will go home, and love each other, and fall asleep in each others arms.
