Lanzhou mistakenly hit a day trip
Although I have been to Lanzhou several times, but every time I just eat a bowl of Lanzhou noodles, or work in the body, did not go through, this time is also going to Xinjiang to turn around I didn't expect to be mistaken in Lanzhou. I could take a day to go slowly and find that all aspects of Lanzhou's rectification are particularly good. The happiness index of the local people is really high, even if it is not weekend. On the Yellow River, there are a lot of people on the loungers, facing the Yellow River, drinking tea and chatting, a cup of tea, a plate of melon seeds, nothing at all, leisurely and self-sufficient, really have a fight with the success 
Lanzhou must come to Zhongshan Bridge, the first bridge of the Yellow River in the world. The earliest known as the Yellow River Iron Bridge, which lasted for three years, was built with a cost of more than 306,000 silver. Who knows how much it will be converted into the current RMB?
A Lanzhou, returning to the night city
Zhangye Road Pedestrian Street is Lanzhou's most prosperous downtown area, exquisite shops, a variety of exquisite and gorgeous display, look at the ruins of the site, the rough lines of the loess pile, facing these We don't know what to do for a while. Zhongshan Bridge is a famous attraction for people who come to Lanzhou for the first time. When they arrive at night, they have no chance to see the yellow river that rushes under the bridge. Just vaguely remember, the windless night, the Yellow River is also so gentle.
The Lanzhou Yellow River Iron Bridge at night lights up, forming a beautiful picture of the Yellow River promenade along the coast, beautiful. The waterscape and the lights are integrated into one, which is extraordinarily festive and dreamlike. Specially took a tripod to photograph the night view of Zhongshan Bridge and the Yellow River, and recorded our last night in Gansu with a camera. Under the long exposure of the lens, the rushing Yellow River water seems to be still, with colorful lighting, like a layer of rich night makeup, completely different from the daytime.
Song Dongye sang in "Miss Dong": The night time of the Drum Tower is hurried/unfamiliar. Please give me a Lanzhou / so those may not be true Miss Dong. Yes, we bought Lanzhou, but found that there is no Drum Tower in Lanzhou. But Lanzhou in everyone's mind is unique, not only in the lyrics, but also in our memory.
