Arrived in Hangzhou this afternoon – September 10 – from Beijing. Stayed in Beijing last night after arriving from Toronto on an Air Canada flight that was 4 hours behind schedule. More about Air Canada later.
The Mid Autumn Festival or Moon Festival falls on September 12 this year and in Hangzhou three days later on the Qiantang River the Tidal Bore makes its appearance. It is also known as the Silver Dragon. My business partners apartment overlooks the Qiantang River so I will have a birds-eye view of this event.
