I finished up my week of meetings in Hangzhou and had time to stroll around town a little bit in the afternoon.    I really like Hangzhou.  They have done a great job of preserving a lot of the history and charm of the city.    Being that it was off season it wasn't too crowed to walk around.   Here was one of the nicest Starbucks I have seen traveling around.   They have done a great job of not making it look too much like a cookie cutter Starbucks.

For the younger readers, these are called pay phones.  A long time ago when people weren't born with mobile phones in their hands they had to carry around a dime or a quarter (for the longer calls) and when they wanted to make a call they would have to stop and find one of these machines.
