Photographer's Note

I visited many places that Gert visited 30 years ago. But China has changed so much that he can't recognize any places. But finally I have found something that hasn't changed at all! Here two pictures of the same place - the Longmen (Dragon Gate) in Xi Shan (Western Mountains) near Kunming. On the left - Gert's photo made 30 years ago and on the right - mine made recently. I use the same idea as in some previous cases - I just put two pictures together, it is better to see similarities and difference. The main difference is that my picture (on the right) is less sharp (wrrr.).

I made this short trip in my last day in Kunming. It was a bit risky as in the same day, in early afternoon we went to Guangzhou (only a bit more than thousand kilometers :)). I haven't realized that the whole walk have no shortcuts. But we were lucky, we didn't miss the high speed train. Btw. Kunming is quite a big city. from the center to South Railway Station one goes by metro 50 minutes.
