Postcard #27 – From Hangzhou

by syaffolee

I’ve been to the southern part of China very briefly as a tourist when I was a teenager, but not Hangzhou which is located on the east coast of that country. So, sadly, I don’t really know anything about this city other than what I’ve read on Wikipedia.

That’s one of the interesting things about Postcrossing. I already knew that there were a lot of places in the world that I don’t know much about, but that’s really brought home every time I receive a postcard in the mail. Sure, I know about China, but other than a couple major cities, who knows? I’m sure Hangzhou is as different from Beijing or Harbin or Guangzhou as San Diego is different from Baltimore or Houston or Poughkeepsie.
