The flight left really early in the morning at 7.35 so had to get up 5 am. Luckily the plane was half empty so I got 3 seats for myself to sleep on :)
Sky is clear almost everyday, nice view from the hotel
Manzhouli was much warmer now compared to last month. Normal Finnish winter with around -25 degrees and beautiful clear blue sky with sun shining both days. Thanks Luke for the awesome hotel upgrade and a great stay at Shangri La again. Gym was empty both evening and morning when coming here.
City was more alive now than last time before the spring festival. I never feel like being in China when coming here, it’s something between an Asian and Russian town. Hopefully I’ll visit some summer. I was told that Manzhouli is like a “forever weekend” place and there are parties daily with dance shows and Russian bands playing in many clubs. There was a band playing at the hotels Russian restaurant. We were only 4 people eating, the band must have felt very appreciated with this small audience.
Seat-belts are always in the way, so why not do like this?
