"In heaven there is paradise, on earth Suzhou and Hangzhou," according to a Chinese Yuan dynasty poet. Suzhou, in centuries past a haven for scholars, painters and poets, with its quiet walled gardens and jade-green (but don't look too closely) canals, still retains much of the old city's loveliness. And its citizens still love to eat the food that has made the city justly famous. Particularly when the weather begins to cool, they begin to think of crabs.
