It’s Friday! The happy weekends are waiting for you. After five day’s hard work, it’s time for you to consider how to relax yourself.
Sometimes, you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be. Recently, I’ve been quite busy. A lot of things are waiting for me to deal with. When I am under pressure, I choose to have a short trip to relax myself. So I invite some friends and drove the car to fishing near the city.
Jinding Lake is our destination. The truth is, it is not a lake but a reservoir. As it is quite large, the local people call this reservoir the “lake”.
Many city men, like me and my friends, drove cars to the Jinding Lake for fishing. It doesn’t matter whether you can catch the fish or not. This is an opportunity for busy city people to slow down the path of their life.
Because it is Friday, there are less people than the weekends. But lucky me! I don’t like the big crowd of people. I am here for the scenery not for people.
I spent the whole afternoon at the Jinding Lake. It was already 6 p.m. when I realized. The sun was still bright. So I took out my camera and record down the fabulous sunset.
Slowly, the nightfall is approaching. The sky became red and orange. The lake was painted on orange color by the sunset. The surface of the lake was so sparking that I can barely open my eyes.
To me, Lhasa is one of the most purity places in the world. I was totally shock on my first sight of the blue sky of Lhasa.
I never see such a fascinating sky ever before. The sky of Lhasa is so blue and pure that making my heart purified.
Lhasa, which means “Land of the Gods”, is the heart of Tibet. There are three main hills of Lhasa represent the “Three Protectors of Tibet.”
Potala Palace is the most magnificent buildings in Lhasa. The building measures 400 meters east-west and 350 meters north-south, with sloping stone walls averaging 3 m. thick, and 5 m. (more than 16 ft) thick at the base, and with copper poured into the foundations to help proof it against earthquakes.
Lhasa is a magical place. It makes me don’t want to leave this city.
Many people yearn for visiting Tibet. Lhasa is the hottest place which fans of tourism want to go most.
Lhasa, which means “Land of the Gods”, is the heart of Tibet. Over 1,300 years old, it sits in a valley right next to the Lhasa River. It is located at 3650 meters (12 000 feet) above sea level on the northern slopes of the Himalayas.
People love Lhasa because of its night. When the nightfall approaches, people, who you usually barely meet in the day, all come to the street.
I find that the night of Potala is really lively. Tourists hang around the streets and square. They drink and chat. Artists play nice music and songs. It makes me feel less holy religion atmosphere, but more sense of leisure life.
Samuel Johnson, the British writer, once said: “Hope itself is a species of happiness which this world affords.” That is very correct.
In this cozy night, I am walking along the Sand River. It is a infamous place which few people visit here. To me and the river, this is a good thing.
Watching the peaceful river and the amazing sunset, I can’t help thinking the meaning of our life. There is a kind of missing which can be called a light happiness. There is a kind of happiness which is the frequent concern. There is a kind of concern which is the distant appreciation.
“All men whilst they are awake are in one common world; but each of them, when he is asleep, is in a world of his own.” Plutarch
Recently, there are a lot of complains around me. Basically there are three types:
what did I do? What am I doing? What will I do?
Time slightly pushes us away. We are not at the age which can dream anything we like any more. At that time, we are talking about our ambitions and eager to fulfill our future. At that time, we thought we had plenty of time and opportunities. At that time, Bright future is like the North Star in the sky, we just keep going will finally reach the destination.
However, after graduation, all the colorful dreams are fade way. We have to face the reality. Now I have the deep feel that, I lost myself on my way.
