A new place for us in our city

The place was built by the nation more ten years ago.

We know this place and got past here into other city sometimes.

But we had never visited here before now.

So this is first time visiting.

There are a lot of cherries.

We can not wait to be here next spring.

Goodbye my car!

We have gotten out this car yesterday.
I have driven this car for seventeen years.
The traveling performance is still excellent.

Final record running is 200,35.2Km.
Goal Achievement 200,000Km was 27/Jan./2009.

The most funny story was that a moss grows on the car.
It will be discarded vehicle.
Thanks my lovely car.
