China - as I have seen it

From traveling in China since 2009
a look from inside

About this page

Ni hao 你好

I use this page to show my photos from China. I never got familiar with the use of social media, insted I made this homepage to display my photos.
I first came to China in april 2009, and had a great introduction to China from my old friend Anders Kjær and Jing Xie and her family.
Later I was married to a golden-hearted chinese woman. On the picture above she is dressed up in traditional clothes in Long-Ji , Guandxi-prov. During the years from 2009 to 2016 I had visited China nine times and been around many wonderful places, and I have meet very good friends and enjoy the hospitality of the Chinese people.
During my visits to China , I have used this page to display some of my photos and some diary notes :-)
Fell free to have a look around

  • Gamle boliger i Wuhan
    Gamle boliger i Wuhan. "Gamle" boliger i Kina er alt som er mere end 20 år gammelt, det skyldes ikke mindst en total mangel på elementær vedligeholdelse.
