The Ethnic Groups of China
Check out this cool photo gallery of China's Ethnic Groups... well, the officially recognized ones anyway.
For some reason it makes me think of Britain around the time of the Industrial Revolution.

That's taken as a given for most of us I think mate,at least it is for me anyway,so it doesn't detract one iota from still being a good effort.The cool thing about this language is that one is on that exciting learning curve for a long time and the challenge remains and doesn't wear thin,but every word or bit of knowledge behind you gives that little sense of achievement and makes it easier next time.Good to see you around.Jiayou. :)

Woah, that's funny, it wasn't blocked an hour ago but it seems to be now.
I'll check for another. Bear with me.
PS. Sheesh, I'm getting nowhere here. Get a VPN bodawei, it's the only way to go!

I can't open the link. Maybe it's blocked in China.......(?). Anyway, I imagine they are photos of 汉族人 who wear ethnic clothing of minority peoples, as is always the case in the PRC.

Yeah, sorry. This link is blocked in China now. Shame, it's a great collection of pics, and all the text is in Chinese. When I have time I might upload some of the pics to another site and link to them here.
@silktown - 没错！What goes around comes around.

Thanks for the challenge...I've worked out what you said and would reply in chinese but my level is still too basic for me not to have to spend the rest of the afternoon on it and i'm at work hehe!

well done mate.That was a challenge...my Chinese would be harder to follow than usual Chinese.This was one of those sentences that I was super confident was wrong.Cool that you could still get the gist.Sounds like you're doing fine.Keep it up :)

Tal, as a kid, I had a guide to the British Empire (published circa 1920?). It fell open at the pictures of bare-breasted ladies. Such pictures from such latitudes were allowed. I learned a lot about diversity from those pictures.
My "favourite" was a row of smiling naked people with the caption: "None of these people can count beyond ten." Ugh. It's all relative, isn't it?
