Today, we visited a resisdent of a business man. Back in the 2000's century many wealthy people came to the area to harvest silk. Eventually, in the 1930's foreigner's came into the area to build up textile factories, resulting in the bankruptcy of the native businesses.
When we came into Hang Zhou, I was very suprised how fast China's development has been in the past 20 years. I was very appalled at the rows and rows of apartment building streching for kilometers.
