    Solar panels are everywhere


    Who could have expected to see so many solar panels in China? I could not.


    On the way to Yellow Mountain, we saw almost all the houses and apartments with solar panels.


    These scenes reminded me of the experience I had when we visited our relatives in San Diego, USA several years ago.


    The weather was perfect on the day. The sky was blue with no clouds. It was rather hot.


    I asked the wife of the house to allow me to use their washing machine and when washing finished, I asked where to hang up the wet clothes. She said "Please use the dryer". I remember the shock I received.


    "Why do we have to use the dryer on such a fine weather day!? Where is the hoist (or cloth line)? " She said "We have no such things. We always use dryer."


    I know many great things in USA but I think the way consuming energy may need more consideration, so that we can minimize the impact to our environment.
