  • I rose my head,upper,upper,to see the flying roof of this big gate.I saw the wisdom of the ancients and of course, a sort of majesty still lingering over the sky.
    Though the gate was rebuilt a few years ago to attract tourists,it still shows the ancient mystery. Through the gate,how many stories happened there? I try to knit with my imagination.
    The Chinese boasted of the long history,true,it's a long long history,but can you see it,each history has been cut into pieces we call it dynasty or ages which may last 200 or 400 years,it's not very long in this way.One can tell it by its family stories,your grand-grand father,your grandfather...
    In history,Luoyang has been ruined many times. By war or by the rebel leader,citizens were killed,blood reddened the river nearby.It is hard to say,It ever happened,but it's recorded in the history book.
    there are many ancient tombs in Luoyang, and many have been robbed by treasure seekers or businessmen. The once rich men in the ancient times dreamt they would continue to enjoy their luxiurious life after death,never foreswaw the opposite result. That is history on another hand.
    Behind the gate, there is a walking street boutiques on each side, selling handicrafts or fake antiques. and there are also delicious snacks there. People there are happy and free compared to the citizens in other districts. People call here The Old District, 'cause there are no high buildings there.
    walking in the street, seeing foreigners come over to you,and pass by.
    You see a part of life.
