The second day we went to golf, 7 of us in 2 flights........ The course is difficult and played in windy condition. The fairway was nice but the green was horrible.....

The third picture, we found "4-leaf grass" somewhere but it did not bring us luck......

4 is not a Fibonacci number. Maybe a genetic mutation?

After golf, we went to Qing Hue Fong (清河坊). It is a pedestrian street with ancient architecture, building like in Sung Dynasty. Hangzhou was the center of producing medicine in the old days. There were a lot of different brands and they had their own medicine plant here. Nowadays most of them were converted into museums.

I believe the city still has many medicine firms nowadays. I was told by a guy who invested in a few of the largest medicine companies in Hangzhou.

The sayings in this picture is good and should be taken to heart by anyone in the health business. Nowadays people would do anything for profit, even risking (other people's) lifes.

After that, we went to Lingyin Temple. It was indeed a theme park rather than a temple. You need to buy ticket into the temple area. If you want to get into the Lingyin temple, you need to buy another ticket, which made me think of Kai Tak or Lai Yuen amusement park (you need to buy ticket to enter the park and pay for playing roller coaster).

So what did we do? I just put my camera through the fence to take the fourth picture......

Funny that I made the same observation 6 years ago about a temple in Sanya.

Yes. We found different shops there too and Bejing Tung Yan Tong has a shop there.

Mist over Xin-An-Jiang (XinAn River) closed to QianDaoHu (Thousand Island Lake).  This place is really really attractive!
