西湖

Yesterday Leah said she thought she (and Mia) would be too tired to spend today with me walking around town again.  Thankfully Leo had already planned to meet me, having taken the time off work a month ago.  So we spent the day around West Lake (西湖) taking in the beautiful scenery, nature and history.

There was a traditional Chinese building which had become a Costa coffee shop:

Leo told me that these sorts of buildings were once only for the emperor, so it felt quite special to have my first Costa drink in China here.  :)

We had 猪肉的小杨生煎 for lunch.  好吃 – delicious.  :)
