S. Peer once braved the frozen tundra of northern Canada as a reporter and photographer. He now calls southern China home and enjoys the humid clime more than the bone-numbing cold of his native land. He misses little of his North American life: Riding in the back of a Canadian Air Force transport plane and crossing a Chinese street both hold the same level of danger and excitement. He maintains a popular China travel and photo blog. His posts and photographs are regularly featured by Reuters and the Chicago Sun Times.
