Qiao Liwei is his Chinese name, and we affectionately call him "Old Joe". He has been to China dozens of times, visited many Chinese cities, tasted various regional cuisines, and has a special plot to the country.
On every trip he travels lightly, a backpack (which he named Wilson) carries all his luggage: the necessary equipment, the indispensable pen and paper. He returned to nature, separated from the Internet, paper and pen instead of electronic devices, outline the scenery along the way, record what he saw, heard and felt, old-school and some hard.
Old Joe is a very lovely "life observer", with a keen insight into different cultures, he feels the similarities and differences of other worlds with curiosity and tolerance, and feels the kindness and warmth of the journey. Maugham said: "A man who can observe the fallen leaves, the shy flowers, and appreciate everything from the smallest point of view, life can not do him." And old Joe was just that.
