  Xuanwu Lake
by chatterley

Xuanwu Lake is situated on the northern part of Nanjing. The name "xuanwu" refers to the black tortoise, and is a symbol of the direction "North" in Chinese Fengshui (the East is represented by "qinglong", the green dragon; the West by "baihu" the white tiger and the South is represented by "zhuque" the red phoenix).

The bank of the Lake has rows of Chinese willows, swaying softly in the wind.
