My friend sent me a text last night with a link to an image that left us both stumped if it was actually real:

After researching I discovered the image is indeed the real deal. Goqui Island is one of many islands that makes up the Shengsi Islands, part of the Zhoushan Archipelago located at the mouth of China's Yangtze River. What makes Goqui Island the standout island of the bunch is its once inhabited fishing village that is now completely camoflauged by thick, green, magical foliage.

I imagined myself hiking up through the fog to the summit, looking down at dilapidated buildings renovated by nature into living art...

I wondered what it would be like to look out a window into a sea of green...


Then I thought of what my friend may have seen when she sent her text:  Don't know how true it is, but I thought about (it.s) PLANTPORN when I saw this.
