Once a friend who had a look at my China pictures asked me how much time I have spent to erase all the crowds from my images using Photoshop. 🙂 Actually when you grow up in Europe you always think China must be crowded beyond belief because the chinese population is somewhat around 1.3 billion people.

If here its crowded around the chinese Spring Festival it is about the same as if you try to go shopping in Europe on a saturday before christmas.
