Hangzhou, China
04.22.2007

The following photographs were taken around Hangzhou during this past month. Hangzhou is a city to just stroll in. If you try to do anything else you are just going to miss it. The first photograph is of a balloon vendor who walks along the streets just selling balloons all day.


The photograph is of my Chinese philosophy instructor, Tian Zhan, who, when asked what he thinks of Chinese philosophy, simply stated: “It encompasses everything. It is too vast to learn.” I though this was a perfect response.
This is a Taoist temple that overlooks West Lake.
