02ChinaTrain

These are videos of recent travels mainly overland through China, Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, and Thailand. The train from Beijing to Lhasa is the world's highest. It is China's "Great Wall" of the 21st Century and truly an amazing feat of technology. There are literally hundreds of carved tunnels that allow the train to ascend through the mountains. There are special cooling devices that keep the permafrost from melting as the train wheels generate heat, passing over the rails. They even pump oxygen into the cars as the train climbs to nearly 6000 meters. I'm experimenting with the animation of photographic content . I hope you enjoy the visual experience. I will be adding many more chapters to this trip. Most videos will be under 4 minutes so that you can watch one or two and return at your leisure. They will be posted at blog: http://beijing2bangkok.blogspot.com/
