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 


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!
