Expression of Kunming

    Yunnan has another poetic name , “south of clouds” , which is a mystery place .  

    Kunming, capital of Yunnan Province, with a history of more than 2400 years, owes its importance to the fact that it was the gateway to the celebrated Silk Road that facilitated trade with Tibet, Sichuan, Myanmar and India. Kunming enjoys a pleasant climate and does its best to live up to its title of “the City of Eternal Spring” . Whenever you are planning to go, the temperature is always pleasant. 

    Kunming has beautiful natural landscapes and many palaces of historic figures and cultural heritage.Especially Kunming is a city of a garden type. The flower is blooming in four seasons, meeting the eye on every side dark green.

    That Spring Festival, I’ve just arrived Kunming by train. Wherever the blossoms opened in all their glory at liberty in the city on every side of the road, every part of the green belt. Cherry, plum, peach, pear were bursting into full blossom. The city was shrouded in what looked like a smog that surrounding of pink, light purple and white snow. Taste the fresh and fragrant grass and appreciate fallen petals in riotous profusion will bring you a good mood. As if we living a retreat away from word. 

    The black-headed gull is a new scenery of Kunming in the last decade. Since the 1987,  the black-headed gulls flying from Siberia holding the sky of Kunming every winter. The square of the city, the rivers of the city, the pools of the park,  even the residential balcony become their leisurely heaven.

    They polished  blue sky of Kunming with the wings of silver. And the city was printed the cute posture of the black-headed gulls foraging and walking. They spend the warm winter with the citizens who protecting and feeding them enthusiastically. Kunming is a warm and peaceful city. The sea bulls stay in their hand when people reached out. People living here,their heart will be warmth and comfort.

    The rice noodles and steam pot chicken have long enjoyed a good reputation, but my favourite food is the fired pine nuts sold in street. I have remembered Kunming  forever because of greediness.

    Large , plump and golden yellow pine nuts fried with various burdening compounds in large pots on the street road. Wow, it makes one run at the mouth. It has all kinds of tastes such as spiced, butyric, sugar and so on. I’m greedy, I bought a big bag of each kind. I usually peel and eat the pine nuts on the way. And I am complained how less of my hands and mouth.  

    This is Kunming city of flowers. People can get along well with black-headed gulls. In the street, pine nuts send off fragrance. It is a charming tour city.

    Go there without hesitation,  to enjoy this place away from the hubbub, to smell the air without gasoline, to drink that sweet snow melting water, to listen to a long absence of the voice of the soul …
