So we are siitting in the car not even pulled up to
the station yet this is this is gonna be a run Should we get out and run? Today it started ridiculously early so naturally we were ridiculously late. We’re going to
check out a new city today in China Hangzhou This is what you call drama What’s the big deal? We made it. Plenty of time P: Karlie would would you like a lemon juice
K: Yes please, lemon juice. Okay, so who did I drag with me on this adventure? First up, Penny guarantee you won’t see her off her phone at this entire trip.
Then we have Kelly, she speaks Mandarin and can basically bail us out if
something goes wrong and then there’s Nicolas, whose bag is full of secrets I think this is our stop. We gotta go Not really feeling my outfit. I see everybody with all these like cute kind of like two-piece suits. I might need to go
shopping I don’t know what it’s like here in Hangzhou, but feel like a
shopping trip might be in our 24 hours schedule. We didn’t exactly choose the
best day for outdoor activities It basically poured all day long. I’m gonna try this breakfast pastry watching them make it back here Bon appetite, thank you This looks amazing and delicious. Breakfast to go.
I have my breakfast walking through this market and I see this fruit in which
I’ve just been told is the stinkiest This fruit apparently is banned from all
airports, trains, everything because it’s smells so bad when you eat it, but I’m
not gonna have that. Let’s stick to my fried dough Our first stop was Hu Qing Yu Tang pharmacy
which founded in 1874, is a pharmacy for traditional Chinese medicine This is so cool The prescriptions look like magic potions It smells so good in here Wow, are those mushrooms? Those are some fungus They’re weighing out all of the perscriptions like if you have a perscription quarter pound of bee pollen, they put in
a quarter pound of bee pollen Next we ventured to Qincghefang
ancient street, famous for shopping and it did not disappoint Wow, thank you Fresh sugarcane juice
straight from the root It’s a little piggy at the market. This is pork That’s a walnut candy I would find the candy and the store no
matter where I am no matter what language I’m eating random things that I find on the street for free This is not a good idea. Ohh it smells like, it’s the inside
of a Payday like peanuts and sugar and probably just peanuts and sugar Mhmmm, oh we need to buy those. They’re good. What is this? I have no idea what this is, but I really want to try it So we made it to West :ake it’s a little
bit rainier than I had imagined, but it’s beautiful West Lake is a big attraction
in China because of its beauty and serenity.
it’s said that many poets and painters have come here throughout history
seeking inspiration Oh my god, that’s amazing Not gonna go to the McDonald’s, but I’m
gonna swing by Starbucks, just for a quick coffee! Last up on this trip, we signed up for
tai chi lessons at Taiji Zen a Center founded by Jack Ma and Jet Li.
This should be interesting. So the final stop on our tour today in Hangzhou is a
Tai Chi lesson and we have the amazing Jason here to teach us what to do J: Tai Chi movements – we just use our body to show how the tai chi philosophically is Now breathe in here and breathe out relax the chest You can use your palm I’m Ying, she’s yang I feel the power See you next time! Bye I’m so tired and delirious. Okay, um Okay so, Hangzhou it’s been awesome. I’m crying laughter and tears of joy. It’s been so
much fun. I’m gonna jump on a flight tonight. Everybody’s flying home. I’m sad to ;eave China, it’s been so much fun and I’ll be back soon Bye
