We have left Shanghai and travel to the island of Putuoshanâ€¦ that means about 2,5 hours in a bus (without those traffic yams only 1) and another two hours in a speedboatâ€¦
On the island we did, what pilgrims didnâ€™t do â€˘ hiking and walking. We visited several Buddhist monasteries â€˘ a very interesting religion, very pragmaticâ€¦ in the evening we had wonderful dinners with fresh fish a (foot-) massage and karaokeâ€¦
The problem was the next morning â€˘ waking up at two thirty (in numbers: 2.30 am) we wanted to attend a Buddhist service, it was so interesting and such a beautiful morning (especially because the Taifun (Hurricane) had changed itâ€™s direction.
After two days and lotâ€™s of Buddhism it was time to leave for Shaoxing â€˘
Never heard of it, well itâ€™s a kind of small city, only 5 million inhabitants. However, it isnâ€™t a very exciting place, so we just stayed a night and took the train to Hangzhouâ€¦
