Life in plastic

At -20 °C each “aria di fessura” is “aria di sepoltura”, which in Italian means winds through a slit bring to the grave. Winter in Harbin often brings the temperature down to -20°C and below. Plastic foils and tape are therefore applied to doors, booths, windows, tut-tucs and wherever no slits are welcome.

Smoky days

Smoke and steam are part of daily life in Harbin. The poorest parts of the city are coal-heated. The sulfur, brown-coal smell permeates suburbs and clothes in windless mornings. Moving to the city center, high chimneys from centralized heating stations paint the sky with clouds. Along the street, boiling pots with sweet potatoes and food booths provide their share of steam for the day.

China Red

Red is the lucky color in China. And it is the only way to fight back Nian, the mythological man-eater beasts living under mountains and seas. From red flags to red wedding dresses, the red color in China paints whatever brings luck and power. Including the rare and very expensive Arowana / dragon fishes, with their red, coin-shaped scales.
