Today I changed hotel to the Best Western Hotel just next to the border crossing railway station. Much better rooms than the Lushan Hotel I've stayed at the last few days. But I think their ironing board is made for dwarfs or Asian children :-)

Thanks for the pictures Mats! It was a really epic trip for sure!

I was indeed pointing to the wrong line in the production pic :)

Yes, it was really fun to be a part of this tour - even if I had to divide my attention to also include my wife every now and then :-)

The Tokyo makerfaire looked like a blast as well, I wish I'd been there as well. Maybe next year....

There's a new trend sweeping Asia. Yes, it's FACEFRAME! (or FRAMEFACE if you prefer). Here's but a few of the FACEFRAME! poses I coaxed out of people on this trip, though I'm but a lowly amateur compared to the FACEFRAME! resurrector himself, Aaron from Oomlout.

A classic FACEFRAME! in the offices of our shipper. Chinese companies always want your picture in front of the sign at reception. We do the normal pose, then insist on FACEFRAME! L to R: Ian, random office girl, Susan our contact, and Arakis.

Ian and Eric Pan of Seeed Studio FACEFRAME! at final night dinner.

Tayken and Ian FACEFRAME! at Tokyo Maker Faire.

You don't even need a partner to FACEFRAME!, you can do it alone!

One last pic. Aaron from Oomlaut and Ian FACEFRAME! on the Shenzhen metro, but matseng is far too dignified for that game ;) I get only partial credit for this one.
