    BEFORE GOING HOME

    No one on the world don’t know the SILK ROAD, but seldom know the SILK CAPITAL is Hangzhou. In summer the most often wearing clothes for girls and ladies are silk. So it’s no strange when we see SILK DANCING in the morning. It is one way of morning exercise for women in Hangzhou. In picture people just finish the silk dancing and prepare to go home.

    EGG PANCAKE ROLL

    It's a traditional snack in Hangzhou. I saw this snack when I came to Hangzhou the first time, about 40 years before. It's favorite for common persons here. The vender made it with flour paste, eggs to do a thin pie, wrap up the green Chinese onion and fried sticks and add some sauce on it.
    Price: RMB 1.5 Yuan only.
