Joseph Rock blog

The Internet can be sublime.

In the footsteps of Joseph Rock is a blog run by an Australian guy who has spent a lot of time walking and traveling in the mountains of Sichuan, Yunnan and Tibet. This is how he describes the blog:

Kham then and now. A photoblog showing how eastern Tibet looked in the 1920s and how the same places and people look now. Based on the explorations of botanist Joseph Rock.

Go have a look. In the footsteps of Joseph Rock is here, but you'll have to click here if you're in China to circumvent the ridiculous, infantile censorship system that the nanny wankers in charge of the Internet here inflict on us.

Link via Supernaut, another blog well worth a visit if you are interested in the arts, especially performing and visual, in mainland China and Taiwan.
