Some news channel recently included Cinque Terre, Liguria, Italy among the places to avoid because of mass tourism. They are probably right: I never managed booking an accommodation in Cinque Terre during spring, summer or autumn. What about winter, then? Enjoy the colors of Cinque Terre, painted out of the sky on each of the five villages.
Pictures shot in Vernazza and Porto Venere (the sixth “Cinque Terre”). Click each picture to enlarge
I have been on my own 4 day long in Harbin, without understanding a word and without being understood. Shops signs, bus stops and restaurant menus lost their meaning. The connection to the outer world turned flimsy. Still, several times I have been asked to pose for a souvenir picture with strangers. I had my fun playing the exotic creature with locals. And whenever I gestured for shooting a picture to someone else either in downtown, slums or rural areas, I always received a smile back. How warm was my human experience in Harbin, despite the constant -20 °C. Au-revoir, China!
