Have you watched the famous Korean movie called “Winter Sonata”? Do you like it? Do you like summer or winter best? I love winter for it suggests a romantic experience. Winter 2009 has left me a precious memory I will never forget. It was the first winter I spent in China. Before that, I never knew what winter felt like or how cool it would be. Indeed, winter in Guangzhou was freezing although it was not snowy like the southern part of China (Beijing and its vicinity).
On one winter day, when I just got back from Shenzhen, my friends directly asked me to go with them to visit a relative's friend in Shaoguan. Shaoguan is still part of Guangdong province and is regarded as the north gate of Guangdong with Hunan in the north and Guangzhou in the south. Because of my great passion to explore China, I responded my friends’ request with excitement and finally agreed to go to Shaoguan despites my tired body. I soon prepared my clothes, winter jacket and some food, ready to set off to Shaoguan.
