Wuzhen, a water town

For Tomb Sweeping day (same day as Easter) we took a bus two hours away from Shanghai to a water town called Wuzhen (pronounced like 'woochin').

This town is known for its early history of fabric dyeing. The workshops still exist, as a display, as do samples of the fabric that are hung out to dry on large wooden racks. Walking through the racks of flowing fabrics immediately makes one think of 'crouching tiger, hidden dragon.'
