Despite a wave of travel warnings issued by several Western countries, I made it in and back safely from China without any troubles. Surprisingly enough, I was warmly welcomed by the Beijing International Airport immigration officers and I have to say that I was impressed by the smooth process made possible by the implementation of new kiosks that take care of fingerprints and pictures prior to meeting an immigration officer. And when I left China, the security guards liked my Huawei badge and showed their deep appreciation by giving their thumbs up.
