Silk Route Blog -- More than Palladium Prints
For clarity's sake, I thought it would be best to have a separate Blog for the Xi'an and Silk Route portions of my trip to China this Fall. So I've created the Distant Past: Silk Route Blog for postings, photos, maps, Google kmz files and more. I'll be posting mostly color pictures, not just the ones that might be candidates for Palladium printing. In addition, I'll be posting videos, audio notes, GPS tracks and other travel-related information and interpretations on the new Blog. I would invite those who have followed this Blog, especially the "official" followers, to follow the Silk Route Blog as well. The first postings are of Silk Route maps and other materials that set out the scope of my destinations in western China. Later postings will show new possibilities about how the Blog might be used. Some of these are CPU-intensive, but are all worth at least a glance. I'll be posting in embedded windows not only photos but video and GPS routes as well. This is important because one can use many interactive features of applications like Google Earth and Everytrail, but all within the Blog itself!
