Framing the fight

A photo exhibition on Japan's aggression against China from 1894 to 1945 is being held by the China Photographers Association. Entitled Study on Photos Taken by Japan from 1894 to 1945, the exhibition presents photos capturing big campaigns between Japan and China. On display are more than 100 photos taken by photographers, soldiers, organizations and news agencies from Japan. Several hundred picture books published by newspapers Yomiuri Shimbun and Mainichi Shimbun recorded Japan's invasion of Chinese cities like Nanjing, Shanghai and Wuxi as well as large-scale wars between Japan and China before 1945. Some pictures show the Japanese troops' violence against Chinese people during the Nanjing Massacre. "The materials on display show that Japan has collected information about China in all fields. The collection reached its peak before World War II," says the curator Zeng Huang.

A city of romance

I arrived in Bangkok before Valentine's Day for a romantic getaway and ended up heading from the airport into the heart of an anti-government protest site. That had not been part of the original plan. The fearless metro staff had directed me to Silom Road without batting an eyelid. As this was one of several rallying sites in the city - some were in the process of being dismantled - it says something about how dangerous they considered the situation to be.

The other side of Xinjiang

A recent surfeit from visits to the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, Turkey and Ningxia Hui autonomous region had left me a little reluctant to try any more lamb, but a new Xinjiang restaurant in Beijing beckoned, and by all accounts, it promised to be different. "You can eat beef," the spouse quipped. "Who would eat beef at a Xinjiang restaurant?" I shot back.
