Thus, a color balance has been achieved. Especially, as you can see, some clothes are hung for dry in the sun outside the houses, which actually enliven the life scene in this waterside village, and shows that people here are living in tranquility. From the costume of the girls, we know they are the typical beauties in the south region of the Yangtze River.
