China panos

Panoramic pictures from China

The pictures were taken during our last trip to mainland China in October/November 1999. Macau still is very much Portuguese on the picture. There's not much I have to tell about the Bund, Shanghai's past and very likely a symbol for its future. Qingdao has its famous beer, but this is definitely not the most charming thing in town. Changchun might not be very exciting as a town itself, nevertheless I spent close to two months there.
