  1. Hey Ian,

    I really love your tours (a bit jealous too). However, this time it looks your camera equipment was not really up for the job?!
    How about a mirror-less bridge or DSLR camera next time ;)

    1. Maybe you need to join us and make that happen! :) Will in in Tokyo first week of December after 2 weeks in Shenzhen :)
