last week i went to hangzhou...where is it?
i meet my Yunnan province trip-mates rapazote, bom, alves and a new signing chico @ shanghai.
from there to hangzhou is just a 2-hour bus drive.
hangzhou is consider by chinese like one of the most beautiful cities of china, maybe even the most!...no discussion about it!
imagine a city that the city center is a enormous lake (the West Lake) with a lot of trees all around, small islands, chinese traditional bridges connection edges, clean air, flowers, birds, children playing, nature environment and sounds... B E A U T I F U L ! ! !
calmly ridding a bicycle around the lake is almost a therapy ! ! !
despite it, it's a 6 million inhabitants city and also has big buildings, crowded street, traffic... but after seeing and being embraced by such landscapes, you don't even notice it...
...it was another great short-trip!...
...this city together with suzhou are considered the China's Veneza...
...suzhou...a place to visit in the future!!!
it's amazing the diversity you can see in China...
next away weekend stop - hopefully qingdao (beach) !!!
p.s. (for those you don't know what "潘伯霖" is...just look at the blog's title...it's "pan bo lin"- my chinese name...in china be chinese, right?)
p.s.2 - i still received the photos from my trip-mates. i'll post some later (in this post).
