We went on a day trip today to the nearby city of Hangzhou. Its a very pretty city, built around a massive lake. We decided that it looked a bit like windermere, as there was both a huge lake and it was full of chinese people! haha! We spent some time just wandering around the edge of the lake (which apprently takes 5 hours to walk around completly!) and having a look at the various temples and pagodas along the way.

P1070250.jpgP1070254.jpg We came back and relaxed at the bottom of the hill before heading back to get our return train to Shanghai. We had an ace day, but are now tired out and looking forward to bed! We leave Shanghai tomorrow to go to Nanjing, which is 3 hours away on the train.

We hope you are all well,
Missing you lots,
Lots of Love,
Chris and Alex xxx
