Side trip: Qibao

During my week in Shanghai I took a couple of side trips.

To get away from the hustle of the big city, Alison suggested I take a short ride on the 9 metro to Qibao.

Arriving there I wandered into a nearly empty temple complex.

When I wandered out, the market streets were filling up with people.

The second trip was to a city called Hangzhou…

    I was charmed by the video you sent of West Lake in Hangzhou. I can see that when people are living in a very crowded city in any country, it is nice to have a place to go to that is peaceful, beautiful and serene. Absolutely loved it.
