When I got a call from someone who identified himself as the Director of Qing Guo Preservation Association, I knew this might be something interesting for those of us who LOVE that very special place in Changzhou.



Mr. Pan told me about his friend Mr. Zhang who is the fourth generation to live in one of the tiny houses along the 1000 year old canal that runs through Qing Guo Alley. He described Mr. Zhang as friendly and very lucky to have the oldest tree in Changzhou, right in his back porch.





Zhang has decided in order to help the preservation of Qing Guo Alley to open his home, serving fresh ground coffee (ordered from South America on the internet) and a peaceful environment.



While sipping your coffee you can enjoy a 500 year old conifer over looking a small fish pond, and beautifully accented with a man-sized stone structure.





Most of us have walked down Qing Guo Alley but now we have a place to stop and peek into the ancient world of a Changzhou almost lost to modernization.



Mr. Zhang is also an avid dancer and will provide you dance lessons under the stars and with the sweet aroma of his hidden heaven.At the doorway is a lovely green plant beckoning you to enter.It is well worth the delicious South American coffee (10 RMB)!
