Every place is a place, and connecting places, there are roads. Along the roads, there are trees, plants, buildings, bridges, lights, power lines, signs, and maybe animals. There are millions of combinations of things you can see out the window of a car. And if you’re not driving, you can take photos. Which is what I did on the road to Suzhou.
Photos on the Road to Suzhou
On the day of our drive, the sky was white. It was just… empty. As if something was supposed to have been put there but had, indefinitely, been forgotten. We joked that we were in a videogame where the sky failed to render.
We stopped at two highway rest stops. I only went in the first one. It was very new, very clean, and felt a bit like an international airport terminal.
We went past a huge flock of big white birds perched in some trees. Egrets? Storks? Herons? I dunno, but whatever they are, I never saw so many all at the same time! Took some lousy photos of them:
Suzhou is somewhat more interesting when you get to the center. That’s a separate blog post.
