Going to Hong Kong for 5 day to fix some things, like usually the plane is late again. China should really open more of their airspace and not keep it closed like it is now. Only 25% of the Chinese air space is open to public traffic, the rest is military…And there are just too many planes in the air for keeping it smooth. A few years ago planes were never late here, now it's been like this every time!
Took the Maglev train again and this time it went up to 431km/h! I also met a Chinese girl in the train who had studied Swedish as her major and I could seriously not tell that she was Chinese! The accent was pure Stockholmish! Amazing! She told me there are 17 people in China who study full time Swedish, not much considering to the 1,4 billion population here.
I accidentally smuggled a Letterman into the airplane. When I was at the que for X-Raying the bag I remembered that I have my keychain with me. Dammit! I had this Letterman since I was 12 years old. Maybe I don't have a terrorist face because the guy at the counter didn't even ask me to open the bag! Just looked at me like "Oh, another blonde guy, whatever" I'm sure I'm not gonna get away with this the next time, have to put it into the other bag, this knife has sentimental value and has been faithful for over 14 years now :)
What sells like Vodka in Finland when it comes to China? CARS!!! People here buy the most amazing wheels without so much as looking at the price tag. Most of these luxury cars were already sold BEFORE the expo even started. I got a VIP pass to the event so got to see all the newer and extreme models and no need to que...
I was an Exhibitor....lol
Kimi's driving one of these I guess
Last weekend's 3rd place in the F1 Race
The most expensive car in the Expo was the Rolls Roys Limousine with gold and diamond interior. Price about 150 million Euros! For that you can buy 1,5 private jets…But if you want the most expensive this is what you should get, ridiculous price…
The newest Ferrari model looked cool and there were also a few other that were very nice. From 0-100km/h in less than 3.4 seconds!
Lamborghini is more popular in China than Ferrari and the average age for people who buy one of these is less than 30! It's over 20 years less than anywhere else in the world. What would you say if your first car was one like this?
Volvo's concept car was pretty cool as well! The old school version was also at display here.
New electric cars are coming to the market, this new Smart is purely electric and looks pretty futuristic...
The Japanese brand Mitsuoka looked really interesting, wonder how it is to drive. Never heard of the brand. Price about 180.000 Euros for the sport model and the other white that looks like something of a old american car 110.000 Euros.
There were only 2 male models in the whole exhibition, one of them Chinese standing in front of this Riot vehicle looking all big and bad :D
Geely, the Chinese company that bought Volvo had designed a new luxury car. Reminded a lot of Rolls Roys and cost 1 million Euros…
Jaguar beast! Would love to have one of these...
