Leaving Asia with a whimper

Too bad, that my last few days in Asia were spent bedridden with a high fever and bronchitis. I was enjoying a beautiful trip to Hangzhou this past weekend, walking around the enchanting West Lake and the Ling Yin Temple when I started coughing. When i woke up the next morning I knew I was really sick.

There are so many stories I’d like to comment on, so many observations I want to share about Beijing and Shanghai, but I’ll have to wait, probably several days. Maybe tonight if I feel better (but I truly doubt it).

For all its problems, Hangzhou remains one of the most laidback cities in China.

The tickets are a bit pricey, but Ling Yin Temple is a great temple.

I’m curious what you have to say about Shanghai…
