Another large photoupdate !

Hello all!
I am in Shanghai tonight and I have uploaded more pictures from my latest ventures. From Beijing, I travelled east to Xi'an to see the Terracotta Army, and after spending a few days there - went onwards to Shanghai. I will write about these cities later, for now - you will have to do with looking at the new pictures!

best regards - Max

I just love the smell of coffee in the morning.

  • He insisted.... ;-)

    Check out the website of my brother, Ib Knutsen! He is currently working at a UN office in Nairobi, Kenya - and he is a bit more advanced as a webmaster than I am. You will find photos, videos, essays and articles and loads of tips and tricks.

    One of his latest projects was the making of a rap video for Nairobi rappers - definetly worth checking out!


  • Visa to Russia

    Well, those Russians are giving me a hard time.
