Hangzhou Animation and Comic Fair

And again invited by the nice people at the Hangzhou Government Office in Shanghai, we spent last weekend in Hangzhou, all expenses paid, incl. 4* hotel by the lake, all meals, transportation, police escort, VIP tickets for the parade (see pic), Zhang Yimou's Impression Westlake Show by the lake (absolutely amazing - don't miss it if you have the chance), and attendance to the Comic and Animation Fair, something completely out of this World in size, organization and resources.

This time I was given very short notice and was asked to invite just two or three more friends, and being a very complicated week (Golden Week, one of the big holidays in the year) I decided to invite two relatively new friends already staying in Hangzhou. It was a wise decision, since Rafa and Pablo are great guys, nice and funny. And they showed me three of the coolest bars in town.

And even though I came back with a hangover, I simply love Hangzhou.
