China in 24 hours.

Almost a year ago, late January 2007, I was in China. I've finally come around to process all images, so now I present to you:

After touchdown, I was crammed into the tiniest bus ever. I was absolutely positive my knees were going to break every time it hit a bump.

I wished this guy could give me a lift instead.

My first stop was the Chinese wall, where I met these charming chaps.

I also spotted some ancient Chinese graffiti.

After that, I thought it would be a good idea to see some of Beijing.

Suddenly, I stumbled upon this talking bush. It was a very sociable bush, apparently some kind of a celebrity. It even signed one of my photographs!

By now I was running out of time. No more sightseeing! I had to get myself some kind of vehicle, but this pimped out wheelchair, although very impressive, didn't really suit my needs.

Then, out of the blue, I spotted this Harley. "This I shall buy!", I thought to myself the second I saw it.

It was a long drive, but eventually I reached Suzhou.

A quick look at the skyline, before...

...hitting the restaurant! Yummy!

The dinner was fantastic, but what's this? Where's my Harley?!
image hosted on flickr


There it is! That Ą%cker stole my Harley!
image hosted on flickr


There was nothing I could do. So I hailed a cab, and off we went.
image hosted on flickr


Oh boy, did we drive. We drove..

..and then we drove some more..

..until finally, Shanghai!

This was the climax of the whole trip.

Don't you look at me with those big, judgemental eyes of yours!
image hosted on flickr


This guy thought he had it all figured out. He'd already fooled the surveillance camera, but he couldn't fool me.
image hosted on flickr


The day's coming to an end.
image hosted on flickr


Yep, it's definitely getting darker.
image hosted on flickr


Shanghai's night life is crazy!
image hosted on flickr


And so my trip ends in the same fashion it began - on a bus. Only this time I was exhausted, had a massive hangover and on top of it all, I was sick with the flu. Not even sweet music could comfort me.
image hosted on flickr


So long, China.

I wish I had more pictures, but I don't. I didn't really have too much time for photographing, and when I had some time to spare I forgot to bring my camera, or the batteries were dead.

I did actually visit Pudong, but the batteries were dead.
