At home in Hangzhou

Wednesday, 03 April 2013 11:26 By  

A late misty sunrise turned into a cool crisp morning at Westlake as I practiced Tai Chi to knock out the cobwebs from yesterdays marathon journey.
Departed Caloundra at 2:30 am yesterday and arrived at our hotel in Hangzhou at 23 hours later. Flew Brisbane-Sydney-Shanghai then caught the Long Distance Bus (100RMB=$15) to Hangzhou. 3 hours on the bus, freeway all the way, and disembarked in an unfamiliar part of town.
We elected not to get a cab (the easy way) which were plentiful at the Interchange, and spent about 2 hours finding our way. It turned we were not far from the Hotel, it just took some time to orientate. A young guy on a bike saw us looking at street signs and stopped to offer help. A nice welcome to the city.
After checkin we went next door to a very busy bar for a pint of Tsingtao before hitting our warm comfortable beds.
