Great, amazing, awesome thread! What else can I say, a thread that covers more than 10.000km can be nothing but good!

You visited so many different and interesting places and the contrast between Russia and China is amazing! I love such places where you can see two cultures mixing and living well with each other. I don't think I'll ever make such a trip, so your pics are just doing it for me, thanks!
