photos of Hangzhou

OK, I'll start putting up pictures of Hangzhou.

Do these photos look like they were taken in a modern city?

We'll start with the Zhejiang Great Hall of the People.  This building is only a couple of years old, and is one that I really like.  It looks very modern, yet the lines are very Chinese style.

a downtown street

As I paused to take this photo, two women approached me.  They told me that they had come to Hangzhou from the countryside, from Anhui.  They were looking for work, and had not eaten for two days, and could I give them some money to buy something too eat?

It's a story that I hear quite often.

How to deal with the traffic problems caused by so many new cars???

Start banning bicycles on city streets!!

I find this trend extremely disappointing.
