We all know the terrible earthquake happened seven days ago (May 12, 14:28 PM) in Sichuan province. Today the while country is mourning the loss of the lives in China. I belive many people in the world share the same loss too. After all, we are living in the same earth (global village).

I visited Sichuan Jiu Zhai Gou about 3 years ago. While mother nature is ruthless sometimes, we should not ignore that Sichuan is a beautiful place, same as her people. So don’t refrain yourself from visiting Jiu Zhai Gou or Sichuan in the future. I gurantee you will love it.
