I saw the Eclipse of the sun at the West Lake on July 22nd, 2009. The moment of total darkness lasted about 5 minutes! What an incredible experience! I'll try to post my video of the crowd oo-ing and aw-ing. It takes a long time for vids to upload.
Hangzhou is an upscale city. Lots of well-to-do Chinese live there, and its very close to Shanghai (40 min?). I'd like to go back and visit Geoff and Sophie again.
Next stop? You guessed it.. Shanghai!
