A former resident of Ningdu shares some information.
I am a Ph.D. student of Astrophysics here in the U.S. One of my
friends forwarded your e-mail to me. It is my
to help you as best as I can. I will try to let you know more about my
hometown, Ningdu. Unfortunately, there is little information on the web.
So I guess it is really hard for people outside to know what Ningdu is
Well, Ningdu is a little but beautiful county, with some small towns
surrounding it. The population is about 100,000. In the center of the
(here, the center means the most populated area, also the center of the
education and economy), similar like the downtown of a big city,
walking is enough to visit from the North to the South, and another
20-minute walking from the East to the West. I guess the Orphanage is
on the skirt of the city, within one or two miles. I haven't been to
before. There is a small river in the east side of the city, named Mei
flowing from the North to the South. But around the city, within five
there are beautiful mountains, some of them are resorts of travelling.
The weather there is not always pleasing. It has distinct four seasons.
In winter, it is cold because of the high humidity, although it is seldom
below zero Celsius. In spring, raining is often during March and April.
summer, specially from July to September, it is hot. And autumn again is
raining season, although less compared to Spring. In general, there are
air conditioners inside. So, people will use coal stove for heating
winter but cannot do anything but using fans during hot summer.
As for the transportation, it is better than before now. With the
constructed Chang-Xia Highway, it only takes four hours by taking bus
from Nanchang (the main city in Jiangxi province, same as Chicago in Illinois)
