For many Chinese, India is a land of mystery, but one couple traveled China’s southern neighbor and wrote a book about their experiences. Xing Yi reports.
Daunted by the humid and hot weather, crowded traffic and complex languages, few Chinese would put India in their list of backpacking destinations. But Hong Mei, 34, is one among the few.
From 2009 to 2010, Hong and her United States husband Tom Carter entered India four times. They spent their time in cities and villages in the magical land and took thousands of photos. Last year, Hong published their travelogue The Further One Travels, the Nearer One Comes to Oneself, recounting their stories and adventures in India.
