Old Town, Tea, and Trout

Today we awoke and wandered down to the old town shopping district in Hangzhou. Being Sunday apparently everybody had this same idea, but we still enjoyed shopping in this old district.

We then stopped for some of their famed tea, as our guide books informed us that aside from the beauty of Hangzhou, it is also renowned for it's silks and teas.

We did struggle a bit with the menu.

But the tea was delicious, and the tea pouring was a ceremony in itself.
From the tea we wandered back to the lake and nearer to our hotel, where we found a nice restaurant with an outdoor deck. This is where we treated Emily to her first meal that still had its head, and she loved it....

Outdoor dining overlooking the lake.

Delicious pepper trout.
