Walking around West Lake

My parents headed home on Thursday and I'm working on getting caught up on life and on photos from their time here.  It still seems hard to believe that they were actually here - even though they stayed for two weeks, it went by SO SO fast!  Now I can re-live their visit through a few photos - love the memories together!

While in Shanghai, we decided to take a day trip to Hangzhou to walk around the famous West Lake.  This trip used to take nearly 3 hours by train, but can now take as little as 45 minutes due to the new high speed trains that are running.  Hangzhou is a small town by China standards with a population of around 7 million.

The station was just a bit crowded!

Hangzhou has a cute old town area with plenty of shopping.
