to finish this brief historic overview. Harbin was developed as a hub for heavy industry by the red gouvernors in Northern China. In recent times it had to cope with the demise of this sector. Neverthless, many Chinese form the poorer souterhn or interiror provinces moved to this city and meanwhile the trade with Russia is about to substitute the manufacturing of steel or machinery

Harbin is Chinas coldest province capital. In winter, temperatures hover at around minus 20 degrees. We were "lucky" to witness a heatwave of temperatures within the range of minus 5 to minus 15 degrees.

it was around minus 17 degrees a temperature I experienced a few times in in Germany before



but the atmosphere was as breathtaking as these pictures indicate



quiet, no sounds, nobody talking. Not really Chinese. But fascinating nevertheless.
