ChinAfrica - - Lifestyle - By Ge Li­jun

CAO Shengkang lost his eye­sight in a car ac­ci­dent aged eight. Drop­ping out of school, like many blind peo­ple in China, Cao learned the art of mas­sage at 18, as a way to earn a liv­ing. At 37 he hit the road, a blind back­packer tak­ing on the world solo. Now the 41-year-old, al­ways seen with his dark glasses and a walk­ing stick, has trav­eled to 30 coun­tries on six con­ti­nents. With the de­sire to chal­lenge him­self Cao has opened his heart to the world.
