Video: A Trip to Asia, Part 5 – Peking Duck

The following is the last in the series of videos from my trip to Asia. I thought you might enjoy seeing a professional Peking duck carver in action. It took him 2 1/2 minutes to completely dismantle a blazing hot duck, including its crispy skin. The video below is sped up 2.5x to get it under a minute.

Here is the third video in the series of recordings I am assembling from my trip to China. In this one you see the city of Xi’an at night and day including a short segment of me biking along the wall surrounding the city at the end.

I’m one or two posts from wrapping up this series. Let me know what you think of the production thus far.

Here is the second short video in the series of recordings I am assembling from my trip to China. This one covers arriving in Xi’an from Beijing and includes a couple brief history lessons about Xi’an captured during our time with the tour guide just after our arrival.

This one is longer and may stop to buffer several times depending on your connection speed.

Here is the first short video from my trip to China. It contains a few highlights showing my travel from Seattle to Beijing and glimpses of a couple locations in Beijing.

Hover your mouse pointer over the bottom of the video to bring the controls into view. You can go into full screen mode by clicking the button farthest to the right. The video is jittery—the entry-level Flip Ultra video camera I took on the trip does not have any image stabilization.

Let me know what you think and stay tuned for more videos…
