16 December. Max was in China for a week, and I was determined to show him as many places as I could. Not surprisingly, however, 7 days isn’t that much when exploring a country approximately the same size as Europe. But we’re lucky. Train connections from Shanghai to other cities are amazing, and usually quite fast. So, we headed to Hangzhou, a city about an hour and a half away, and best known for its West Lake. It was a miserable day, with uninterrupted falling rain and a wind that made the tips of my ears tingle. But somehow, the weather didn’t matter. I’m assuming Hangzhou is absolutely gorgeous when it’s sunny, but the pictures still turned out beautifully.
