Off to Hangzhou - the start of a quick visit to three Tier 2 cities in East China. I'd been to Hangzhou before but it was fleeting, and this time have thankfully managed to schedule in a couple of hours free-time to walk around the lake. From freezing, grey Beijing to warmish, verdant Hangzhou is a real tonic.
Afterwards we strolled amongst hoards of people and bright, paper lanterns. It's Lantern Day - the last day of Chinese New Year.
