As a pre-opening event for the Taipei Deaflympics, a company called New Substance put on a fantastic performance with acrobats on cranes, a girl hanging from a helium balloon and colorful dancers in a strange bungee-box. It was very reminiscent of a Circ-De-Solei performance, but all for free!
I shot it in conjunction with Craig Ferguson who also blogged about it, so I’ll save myself some typing and let you read more details about it over on his site.
A pre-opening event for the Deaflympics in Taipei, Taiwan, New Substance put on a beautiful, dreamy, circus-like show. This girl is flew on a helium filled balloon high above the audience and would sometimes come down to touch their hands.

From Litang, I caught a bus (again, through some stunning scenery) to Xinduxiao where I had to transfer to a share cab going towards Tagong.
The Tibetan Monastery in Datong, Tibet (China).
Tagong is known mostly for its beautiful grasslands.
It’s a town that has become very popular with both foreign and Chinese tourists because of it’s relative proximity to Kanding, a small city that’s a day’s drive to the southeast. One can easily arrive in town and set up a tour and home-stay with some of the nomads that live in the nearby grasslands.
