China


2 China 25-8-09 I, originally uploaded by lotte aarts.

This photograph is actually a postcard I got from a chinese girl called Nomo. I met her via Postcrossing.com. That's a project were you send and recieve postcards from random people al over the world!
At the back of the card was this written:
A young Man acting as the city god on a tour of inspection in the 1930's. The temple fair was an old custom in Shanghai, during witch the 'tour of inspection' was an ostentatious event with a retinue before and behind and lots of spectators.
