helene_fr At 响沙湾 (the Resonant Sand Gorge), part of China's Kubuqi desert in Inner Mongolia. The name supposedly comes from the murmur the sand makes as one steps on it. What was once a quiet local attraction has been transformed to attract the tourists: camel rides, swimming pool and even a 5D cinema. Teenagers from Mongolia (the country) even come to work as performers for the Chinese tourists. One entrance ticket varies from 20 to 70 USD. #latergram #china #innermongolia 2w

helene_fr Inside China's Air Force One. Starting in 1957, this little aircraft carried then-Premier Zhou Enlai to Chinese cities and neighbouring countries. Lots of velvet and a single bed inside. I guess he did not expect some "distraction" during the flight. #china #tianjin #latergram 4w

helene_fr Detail of the Tiananmen art installation Chinese artist Guo Jian had created before the police stormed in his studio and smashed it to pieces. The artist, who has Australian citizenship, created a replica of the square and added rolling tanks and flying planes to make it look like a chaotic battlefield. He then covered the piece with 60kg of ground meat, a way to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the June 4 1989 bloody massacre. He was arrested by the police on June 1 and will be deported to Australia in 15 days. Beijing says it is because of a visa issue. Why then destroy his Tiananmen artwork? AP got exclusive access and filmed the artist escorted by the police yesterday to his studio to pick up his last belongings before deportation, all in front of his Chinese girlfriend.

helene_fr Today is the 1st video of AP's series about the 25th anniversary of the #Tiananmen massacre. In "China Voices," AP met with Zhang Xianlin, whose 19-year-old son was killed in the protest. She is at home and the police is monitoring her visitors but we managed to get in. She spoke of pain and loss: "the scars in my heart are eternal." She said her determination to fight was stronger. Above, the picture of her son's dead body, dug out in a schoolyard. Only on AP. www.aparchive.com #china #beijing #64 #june4 #1989 2mon

helene_fr A young couple is posing for the wedding pictures along the Bei'an bridge in Tianjin. The bridge, built in the 1970s, is actually a smaller replica of the pont Alexandre III in Paris. In China, couples love posing in elaborate attire and settings for their wedding pictures and anything that remotely looks like Paris, the "romantic city par excellence, will do. #china #tianjin 2mon
