One week ago I had opportunity to visit Hangzhou with my friends and her’s children.

This city is smaller and more cloudy than Shanghai. I think the pollution is very strong. We were there two nights and we  enjoyed every moment.
Thinking about China, I listened to many people say that all cities in China have mountains, temples and Buddhas, and  are all similar, then if you know a city you know how another one is, but for me each one is unique.
Hangzhou is beautiful and would be even more if it didn’t have mist and the sun would shine every day, but that is it’s charm.
