A first trip to China. Three weeks there and plenty of surprises. The first and excellent one : the kindness and warm welcome of all the Chineses we met. Among them, the tour-operators, drivers and guides to whom we dedicate the pictures enclosed.
Their help was precious and successful. A great win for them : we surely will come back to China. Thank you.
