Resized ImageI was in China from May 11 to May 27th together with two colleagues from SINTEF, Henrik and Gøril. Our first destination was Shanghai, where we took part in a workshop on mobile robotics on Friday 13th. In the weekend, we went sightseeing at "The Bund", where the impressive skyline with Shanghai's many skyscrapers can be admired. In the evening, most of the façades are converted into gigantic displays with video commercials. On Monday, we took the fast train to Hangzhou to participate at the conference 3DIMPVT 2011 (3D Imaging, Modelling, Processing, Visualialization and Transmission). Hangzhou is situated next to the Xihu lake. The lake has nice promenades, parks and green open spaces around it, and it makes a pleasant area for a stroll. After the conference, we travelled eastwards to Xian to see the famous army of Terracotta warrios that was discovered here only around 30 years ago. The army consists of over 8000 statues, every one with unique clothing and facial features. It was built over 2200 years ago to protect to toom of emperor Qin Shi Haung. Our last destination was Beijing, where we visited the forbidden city and also took part in a 3 hour, spectacular hike on the Great Wall of China from Jinshanling to Simatai.
