There are many attractions: the bustling Church Street Marketplace, the beautiful Lake Champlain, the Battery Park overlooking the lake, the university town full of youth and literary atmosphere. It's a rewarding trip here. Flourishing and peaceful, it is like a paradise city waiting for adventurers to explore.
Burlington, United States
It was winter in December in Burlington, and Hu Lu and his team paid a visit to the small city in the cold wind of Vermont. After checking in the hotel at around 4 p.m., despite the travel fatigue, Hu Lu could not wait to visit the famous commercial street near the hotel – Church Street – with his team members. Church Street, the main street of Burlington, has a long history and is more than 2,000 meters long. There are over 100 restaurants and shops with inexpensive luxuries on either side of the street. Up the slope from the entrance toward the end there stands a church. The whole street, ablaze with lights, is crowded with tourists at all times. However, Hu Lu had no time enjoying the bustling beauty because his journey of searching for gourds had begun. He would make the best of this limited one hour before dinner to search all the shops for high-value gourds worth collecting. At this moment, he was lingering in the street, carefully hunting for the favorite gourd artifacts and rushing past each shop. His sweat on the forehead melted into the cold air, and the exotic scenery became a fleeting glimpse.
