Lee is the only male tour guide we meet on this China Tour Package of ours, he is in charge of our well being while we are in Hangzhao, he is a funny guy with lotsa tales to tell, one of the highlight of the trip was the boat/ferry ride across the West Lake. It was drizzling that day so most of us stay inside the ferry to avoid getting soaking wet and its also kinda cold in October. Lee were sitting right next to us and he decides to strike up a conversation with us.
This is the ferry/boat that bring us across the West Lake
Lee : How ? West Lake nice anot ? (in mandarin)
Dabren : What is he asking ?
Me : Honey, Lee is asking you, how is the scenery ?
