I’m pulling out some old photos from my trip to China in 2009, and I’ll show them in sets for each of the city I’ve visited. The first set will be from a side trip to Hangzhou China. This is a really nice vacation city south of Shanghai. The main attraction is West Lake (map) with walking paths and restaurants. The second attraction is a beautiful temple in the mountains called “The peak that flew here from afar”.
The fifth picture is also from the garden on the east side of West Lake. Throughout China, you can see these lions on bridges in every town. The detail is amazing, especially as you see them running for miles down the sides of canals.
