After I finished class today I went to a nearby nature reserve called Xixi Wetland Park 西溪湿地. It’s a very large area of wetland to the west of Hangzhou. I didn’t have time to explore it all, but there were a lot of spring blossoms out, and a Qing-dynasty-style old street with a little pagoda and a few exhibitions. I don’t think it’s original but had a good atmosphere.

The wetland is a series of large lakes like this

Cherry blossom (maybe)
