Today I went for a bike ride around Wenzhou with Kevin and Steve, two chaps I work with. It is really the first time I have ventured right into downtown. We did a loop by riding through the city too the tallest building in Wenzhou (18th tallest building in the world to the roof).....which to our surprise isn't actually finished yet. It looks finished from our side of town, but not the other! From the building we rode to the Ou river, which runs along the north edge of the downtown. A very silty river judging by the color. No poop smell though, so at least it appears the color isn't due to sewage. In the river is an island with a couple of old pagodas, and an amusement park. We followed the riverfront walkway back towards our side of town at the end of the afternoon. It is quite a nice city from what I can tell so far. Enjoy some photos.
