Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

From Karakul to Kashgar
Famed National Geographic photographer Michael Yamashita, went in search of Marco Polo's China and filmed the documentary: "Marco Polo: The China Mystery Revealed". YouTube had clips from the program, and I'm posting an 8 minute piece here that documents his journey from the Afghan / Pakistan border in the Pamir Mountains, and Lake Karakul where we travelled, to the city of Kashgar. The video does a great job of reflecting not only the beauty of the people and the scenery I got to experience, but after seeing his photos, I'm feeling pretty good about some of the shots I managed to get on a FAR less expensive camera than he's carrying around his neck! Watch it - it's great video.
