You really do get the culture of staying in a Chinese Hotel when you stay here. The staff were as helpful as they could be, the room was clean however I am not used to the smell of cigarettes everywhere in the hotel. Thankfully my room did not smell to much, however there was an ashtray on the table, on the toilet roll holder and next to the bed. It is a long walk from the main West Lake however the reason I chose the hotel was its location to the Hangzhou train station

I believe it went well... Triston seemed to be in good terms with the visa officers and I know Lopair have dealt with this kind of thing before. My visa will be collected by Triston next week so fingers crossed nothing ...
I got up at 7:00 to get to the train station by 8:00 (I was 10 minutes late). Not to worry. I bumped into R and N who were buying coffee, and D was there too. I sat next to R on the train ride and we small talked about cities and math.
Once there, we took a 70RMB boat ride to an fulfilling island, where myself and D got cranky from the lack of food. So let's skip to the cool ...
... now is as good as on time and we watched the usual Chinese queueing procedure which involves lots of standing around for no real reason. Once on the plane we realised that this group was unusually fidgety. Beside me was a guy who seemed to have St. Vitus dance & was playing games with his daughter. The guy in front of me immediately reclined his seat, only to have it put back up by the stewardess for takeoff. Everywhere was one big fidget & I have never seen so ...
