We explored the outskirts of this lake one afternoon on three-person bikes. Let’s just say they are harder than they look and with the number of Chinese people snapping pictures of us as we went by (or actually were swerving frantically by) you would have thought the site of three American girls on one of those things had never been seen before.
It was really fun though after we got the hang of it. Hangzhou is known for the Buddha Statues that are carved into the mountain nearby. Sometimes to really understand the statues, you have to be the statues.
This is the most famous Buddha carving
We took a boat tour around the lake one afternoon. I don’t know if it was lack of sleep or too much 2.5 yuan ice cream at Burger King, but Dayna and Rachelle started getting a little silly. This is the result.
This was on our boat tour around the lake.
