Heading home after a long week in Hangzhou, China. It was a good week and it was nice to get to another city in China other than Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai. It is a very clean city with lots of interesting things to go and see. I was amazed at the current build out going on. The number of name brand stores being build out was amazing. More coming on that. I have had a lot of trips this year already to Singapore, Boston, Hong Kong, Beijing and this trip to Hangzhou. It was a lot of travel so looking forward to being grounded in Tokyo for a little while.

Hangzhou is well known for its tea. Dragon Well tea is the most famous Green Tea in the world and they have been making it there for 1,000 years. A small canister retails for about $65USD.
As I travel through Asia I often get the feeling as someone described to me as being 'over subscribed'.
I am not sure if Starbucks is aware but they missed an airport. I was actually looking forward to a Starbucks Coffee and a sandwich but I ended up with a SPR Coffee and ham and cheese sandwich. I did end up spending 5 minutes explaining that I wanted milk and whole cream isn't milk.
Landed in Tokyo. I love how every warning sign in Japan is cute...
No one ever believes me when I tell them they can take the 'friendly' bus to Tokyo when they arrive in Narita. It's actually called that.
Thanks for stopping by today...
