A quick one. Shortly before our horrible dinner at Lou Wai Lou, we killed some time walking around the beautiful West Lake. During this trip, we stumbled upon Zhongshan Park. It was apparently a place once visited by the emperor, for there was evidence of excavation uncovering some rocks that were supposed to be corridors many moons ago.
Not much to say, except it was a pretty nice place to look around and take some time out. You can walk up the mountainous paths to the top, but you don’t really get much more of a view than you would down the bottom. The highlight for me was this lovely little pagoda out on the right hand side of the huge ‘Gushan’ sign written in red.
