Mountains of Guilin

Just had a strange thought: after several hundred years, when all the tall buildings in Shanghai got abandoned, and trees, and grasses grow out of the buildings, that will be another Guilin.

You get the idea of the mountains of Guilin? Just like the high-raising buildings in Shanghai. It just stand there, coming out of no where.

When I am in Guilin, I also understand that the “stone drawing” of Suzhou Museum by I.M. Peimust be the mountains of Guilin.

Look at this drawing and this photo. Are they similar with each other?


  1. JS,

    How many horses you’re able to find on the mountain? All?

  2. DC, you mean the nine horse mountain? I didn’t bother to try – actually, at my first, second and many glance, I didn’t find any horse.
