Walking across China, with daily photos and beard growth

Christoph Rehage, a 26 year old German guy, shaved his head, walked across China for a year, and took photos every day as his beard grew in. He was planning to walk all the way home to Germany but he stopped in China after covering 4000+ km in a year.

Then he edited the photos together (really really well!) to create this slick and compelling 5-minute video called “The Longest Way”.
Make sure to watch it in HD (there’s a little button on the bottom right corner of the YouTube video). And X out all the ads at the bottom of the screen, so you can see the place names.

This is great, in the same was as “Where the Hell is Matt” was great. Seriously. Go watch it.

Also, Rehage has a website with a detailed travel blog, which is down right now because the whole entire internet is mobbing it. But here’s a cache of the page where he introduces Teacher Xie (scroll way down to see the content), the man to whom Rehage dedicated the video and who’s seen walking away pulling a cart in its last moments. Cool dude, that Teacher Xie.
