Nevertheless, I had also passed a few road signs for Yangcheng Lake and the distances kept getting shorter, plus I caught some poster advertisements for an event being held by the Kunshan Tourism Resort that was up ahead. I had traveled to Yangcheng Lake before, and since crab season was still in session, I decided to head back to the area to capture some photos. The battery on my bike was steadily losing power, but I figured I could just charge it at a yellow box while I toured the city. No problem, right?
They had let me know that I could stay a bit longer, and even though I knew my bike battery wasn't fully charged, I didn't want to overstay my welcome. Before I left we took a group photo, exchanged contact information, and bid farewells. I also repeatedly thanked them for their hospitality and repeatedly referred to them as 'hao ren', which means good people. My spontaneous trip to Yangcheng Lake was definitely a memorable experience thanks to generous locals like Mr. Wu. Ah, if only everyday in China could be like this!
