Awesome timelapse video of one man’s 4,500km walk from Beijing to Urumqi

08.10.09 | Comment?

German national Christoph Rehage shaved his head in the fall of 2007, walked from Beijing to Urumqi on foot (yes, all 4,500 km of it!), taking pictures of himself wherever he went, and this awesome video is what he ended up with. Especially appropriate is his use of the Chinese song, Olive Tree 《橄榄树》with its haunting lyrics, “不要问我从哪里来” (Don’t ask me where I’m from). We’re already looking forward to the next video of his walk from Urumqi back to Germany — if he ever gets down to it, that is. [Cross-posted on Shanghaiist]
