The World of Chinese magazine has named me "ONE OF THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY EXPLORERS OF CHINA", along with Zheng He (1371), Xu Xiake (1587) and Matteo Ricci (1582), in a multi-page feature in their latest 2012 issue. The story, “Wanderers of the Middle Kingdom,” also includes a very funny illustrated map of my travels.
This is the 1st page. Scroll down to "comments" to view the remaining pages.
Even though the Western media has largely chosen, either out of ignorance or editorial elitism, to overlook my accomplishments and body of photographic work, it’s nice to be recognized by my compatriots here in the East.
The article is not online, however you can purchase the issue from the World of Chinese website (lots of other good stuff on there as well). www.theworldofchinese.com/store/2012-issues/the-world-of-...
