I went to visit a friend who lives in Yangchenghu island this weekend. The island is really beautiful, and the air is so fresh that I can tell the difference once when I arrived there. When she moved there, her neighbor told her that she made a correct decision to move from the downtown to the island because she could live longer in the island because of the good environment.  I am considering to move to that island now.
