China Open Day 1 (Arrival and qualifiers)

Today I arrived after a long trip Shanghai. Delay from Vienna and from Istambul. In the second plane it was tough to find a empty space for my gear….sitting then and waiting for take off, I captured a funny thing on the screen (Passanger pain progress ;-))


Finally arrived in Shanghai then….
A long cue in front of the imigration office but it took me only 15 mins thru that one ;-)
Finally @ the baggage claim and one of the first suitcases was mine.
So now I had just to go outside and find Neil…..oh man a lot of people were standing there with sheets in their hands.
Slowly went thru them and tried to find mine…..Just after 2 mins somebody was saying my name….and there he was (thanks for picking me up).
We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel….a traffic jam later we arrived there.
Jumping up to the room changing cloth and getting my gear ready…..on the way to the qualifiers.
Another traffic jam later we arrived there….a nice big area filled with a lot of tables and a lot of good players.
I saw some nice matches and shot some pics.
