The lake is one of the main attractions in Ma’anshan. It is actually very pretty and Elle and always run around the lake for a change of scenery from the dirty streets. It is also a prime people watching spot because you see everything China has to offer. Food of all kinds, children playing, make-out benches, dogs galore and plenty of old people smacking themselves (I think it is how they make their blood flow?) A couple of weeks ago I wandered through the park by the lake and took a few pictures.
