One of the highlights of the day was the guided walk on the pathway surrounding the lake. The trail meandered in a completely innocent fashion all the while leading the visitor from vista to vista in a supremely calculated fashion. It was almost like a visit to a movie set - totally designed for effect while at the same time giving the appearance of absolute happenstance. Like that pagoda to the right. It seemed as if it fell from the sky only to land in the perfect picturesque location effortlessly. For those of you who have spent years perfecting the "no make-up make-up look," you know what I'm talking about here. It ain't always easy to look natural.
