pensive old lady probably regretting not running away with that dashing kung-fu master when she was but a young lass of eighteen in 1947 so now she spends every waking hour of her life symbolically awaiting his return by standing in the middle of the grand pavilion at the foot of the seventeen-arch bridge which spans kunming lake and links that small island i mentioned earlier to the mainland which happens to be the place where they were supposed to meet that cold winter's night 60 years ago in the mist...
