This is Yang Yang Huang. He is the oldest of the Cormorant Fishermen on the Yi River in China, at 87 years old. We photographed him and his younger brother (who was 76), and it was one of our favorite experiences. These two gentlemen are no longer able to make a reliable living by using their birds for fishing, not to mention their advancing age. While they do take their birds fishing from time to time on days they know it will be good, for the most part they make their money these days showing tourists and photographers what they used to do and allowing their photographs to be taken. They and 5 other men, all with the last name of Huang, who live in the same village, are the last of the cormorant fishermen, after 1,000 years of the trade. .

After I returned from our recent trip to China, I found that many of my favorite photos were of people. There were many fantastic landscapes, and I’ll be sharing those as I have a chance to go through them. But so many photos we took and had the most fun taking were of the wonderful people in China. On our first morning in the Yulong River Valley it was raining. We arranged to visit the home of Mr. Pan. It happened to be the morning of the Qing Ming Festival that day, so the extended family was busy preparing loads of food, getting ready to visit the tombs of their ancestors in the surrounding countryside. This is a photo of Mr. Pan’s sister in law. Her husband, Mr. Pan’s brother, died some years ago, but she still lives with Mr. Pan in the ancestral home, as is traditional. The family has lived here for hundreds of years. There were deep holes in the stones below the roofline where rain dripped off the roof tiles over the centuries in certain spots, wearing holes in the limestone steps. Mrs. Pan here is using a grinding stone that is God knows how old, to grind soy beans, which will be pressed into tofu for the family. The Pan family is well known in that area, as Mr. Pan’s ancestor from 11 generations back, during the 18th century, left the family home and the farming life, became a general in the imperial army, and went to Beijing, where he protected the Qing Lung Emperor. Mr. Pan is very proud of this to this day.

#Travel#Yulong Snowmountain😜

Before this trip, I had been fretting about traveling certain sections alone. Not because I felt afraid of feeling lonely but because I would have certainly given up when faced with frustrations and difficulty.

So I was grateful when the bus from Lijiang to Qiaotou turned out not to be a bus but a car. All of us were solo travelers -- 2 Brits, 1 Thai, and me, a Filipino. The first part of the hike was steep and some parts were unmarked, so it was fortunate that some could speak Chinese. The second part, the infamous 28 Bends, felt endless. We all encouraged each other and walked at a comfortable pace, stopping to take a break every now and then. The next part was the easiest and also the most scenic, with the snowcapped Yulong mountain at our right and the Jinsha River below.

When we reached Halfway Guesthouse almost eight hours later, we were actually one of the first groups to arrive. How could I have done this trek without this group of people? I was so grateful for this excellent company and the conversations, travel tips, and snacks we shared.

Join咗個local tour去玉龍雪山,個tour包埋去藍月谷。

有玉龍雪山做背景嘅藍月谷很靚。有幾對新人係到影結婚相。好鐘意麗冮的景色👍👍👍。唯一美中不足係⋯中國人的劣性。大媽又大聲又嘈吵👎👎👎,好多觀光車的嘅響安聲👎👎👎。令到美麗的風景佔上大汅點👎👎👎。
