Gathering on the West Lake at Hangzhou

Crowds around a laptop

Playing cards in the sun

Since coming to China, I have been on a journey of discovery, finding new and interesting things that I never would have thought of before, encountering a different way of life.

It is common to see older people gathered outside in China, and I saw lots in Hangzhou. There were groups enjoying a game of cards or mah-jong, exercising, dancing and playing music. But this is the first time I have seen a group of people watching a laptop together outdoors.

They have the sound sorted, with speakers to each side of the screen, but can they all see the picture?
