Just to avoid any misunderstandings, I went to China on a business trip. I also met a lot of very nice people which made it all ver worthwhile.
While I as waiting to board the plane from Amsterdam to Shanghai this mother with her lovely child was standing in front of me and I could not resist taking this photo. That was all, my friends!

A lovely, lovely image Diederick. I hope your trip was successful and most of all that you had enough free time to take many photographs for us. I just stopped by to see if you were home and what a delight to see this photo.
