helene_fr Employees of a real-estate company doing their routine morning dance on the street outside the office - a daily exercise meant to foster team spirit. Other businesses (restaurants for example) also do this. Most of the time, the staff looks bored. #beijing #china 1w

helene_fr A candle-light vigil for the victims of #mh17 in Kuala Lumpur. Only a handful of mourners for 20+ reporters frantically snapping pictures. A journalist has to accurately report an event, and its size (demonstrations, vigils and so on) so as not to misrepresent reality. The initiative of the vigil was laudable but too small to be significant, so we left. #malaysia #ap #onassignment #kualalumpur #malaysiaairlines 2w

helene_fr At 响沙湾 (the Resonant Sand Gorge), part of China's Kubuqi desert in Inner Mongolia. The name supposedly comes from the murmur the sand makes as one steps on it. What was once a quiet local attraction has been transformed to attract the tourists: camel rides, swimming pool and even a 5D cinema. Teenagers from Mongolia (the country) even come to work as performers for the Chinese tourists. One entrance ticket varies from 20 to 70 USD. #latergram #china #innermongolia 1mon

helene_fr Inside China's Air Force One. Starting in 1957, this little aircraft carried then-Premier Zhou Enlai to Chinese cities and neighbouring countries. Lots of velvet and a single bed inside. I guess he did not expect some "distraction" during the flight. #china #tianjin #latergram 1mon
