Construction cranes really are the national bird. The cliche is trite but true nonetheless! These beauties were spotted in the Yuhang District of Hangzhou. The shots near the canal are of the continuing development of Dream Town.
West Lake is beautiful year-round but the summer sunsets and lotus flowers are amazing. Despite temperatures over 100 degrees, my friend Mingyuan and I strolled the lake to peruse the summer scenery. Hot but worth it for the lotus preparing to bloom.
