Hangzhou 杭州 2017

Summer 夏


Nine Creeks and Eighteen Gullies 九溪十八涧

Sun glitter. Meandering creeks. Verdant overhead canopies. 


Longjing Tea Village 龙井茶村 

Faint wisps of tea fragrance. Soft rustle of leaves. 


Hangzhou CBD 钱江新城

Swirls of gold and orange. Breathing in the last of a long day.


He Fang Street 清河坊

Century old shops. Bright crimson lanterns. Where old and new collide.



Wu Hill 吴山


City God Pavilion 城隍阁

Perched atop a hill. Nestled among the trees. Lone, yet regal. Telling tales of a time long gone.


Smelly Tofu 臭豆腐


Fried critters 炸蝎子、蜈蚣、甲虫

Who's up for a challenge? Not me. 


West Lake 西湖


Bai Causeway 白堤


Hu Xin Pavilion 湖心亭


Lei Feng Pagoda 雷峰塔


Doggoes chilling. 


Xiao He Street 小河直街






Steam Young Restaurant 蒸年轻

Xiao Long Bao 小笼包 。Braised Meatballs 狮子头


Steamed Lotus 蒸藕



Supper at Sheng Li He Fang Food Street 

胜利河坊美食街的宵夜







Wu Zhen Water Town 乌镇水乡


Barrels of wine. 


Can we play hide and seek here? 


Dye Factory. 染坊


A vanishing trade.


Stage 戏台


Shanghai 上海

Nine-bend bridge 九曲桥


Nanxiang Xiao Long Bao 南翔小笼包


Yu Garden 豫园





Tian Zi Fang 田子坊


Labyrinthine alleyways. Quaint shops. Little trinkets.



The Bund. 外滩


6 Space-Occupying Lesions journeyed to Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital in a foreign land, and emerged as Chinese butterflies at the end of 4 weeks. Typing inpatient records and discharge summaries in Chinese? Been there, done that. 

Thank you Hangzhou for the month of great memories!
