A la sombra del Himalaya

Vuelvo como todos los viernes a traeros un par de publicaciones relacionadas con el mundo del turismo y los viajes. Hoy van a ser dos recomendaciones de publicaciones ilustradas, una inmejorable manera de conocer más gráficamente el lugar del cual estamos leyendo.

La primera recomendación de hoy nos la trae la editorial Océano-Ámbar, lleva por título “A la sombra del Himalaya”, cuenta con 190 páginas repletas de impresionantes y a la vez bellas fotografías, el texto está en un inglés muy sencillo y fácil de entender y su precio ronda los 25 euros aproximadamente.

John Claude White, quien fuera administrador colonial y sobre todo un verdadero apasionado de la fotografía, llegó a residir y a trabajar durante más de veinte años en pleno Himalaya, exactamente entre 1883 y 1908 a las órdenes del Imperio Británico.

Durante su larga estancia tomó fotografías de todo lo que le rodeaba, desde las imponentes panorámicas del enorme paisaje tibetano hasta montañas o glaciares, pasando por diferentes monasterios, retrastos de la corte de Bután y de los famosos monjes Lhasa.

Esta publicación nos permitirá como eran por aquel entonces todos estos lugares y personas para poder comparar con la actualidad. Cabe destacar la delicadeza de algunas fotografías, que aunque son en blanco y negro, destacan aún más la belleza de esta latitud.

    Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    to share my familiarity here with colleagues.

  26. Chasity - 2 de mayo de 2017 | 18:35

    I think that everything said was very logical. But,
    what about this? suppose you added a little content?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website,
    however what if you added something that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean A
    la sombra del Himalaya –
    Las Escapadas is kinda boring. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines to get people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might make your website a
    little livelier.
