China – A Selection Of 54 Pictures

In Chengyang, a Dong Village near Sanjiang, Guilin region, China

We traveled the 30 days our visa permitted throughout China’s southwestern provinces in Mai 2008: Guangxi (Guilin, Yangshuo), Sichuan (Chengdu, Leshan, Emei Shan), Yunnan (Lijiang, Dali, Kunming, Yuanyang) & Xishuangbanna (Jingling). This was definitely not enough! Nevertheless, we now know it can be easily done without a common language. This introduction to China also was an immense eye opener and some of the negative concepts we had of this country we corrected or simply vanished!

    You have brought back so many fond memories for us. Western China was a big challenge for us also but was it one of the biggest adventures of our lives… hell yeah it was!!! Every time a post of yours pops up in my feed, I know I will be getting fantastic imagery with a deeper meaning. Thank you

    Thanks, Prue & Becks.
    Communication was especially challenging, as well as the huge cultural gap between rural China and our lives.
    But it was one of the most rewarding trips I ever did.
    Glad you likely pictures 😉 Been re-editing many of them in the last months…
    Cheers, Gilles
