Collectivity strong in the nation

Especially when we talk about countryside and when there’s need for a whole village manpower to unite in one cause. I was lucky enough to witness such event in one of Yunnan Bai minority villages last year. Having hidden from rain, I noticed gathering of people at one of the courtyards.

Harvest time

Watch beautiful Chinese countryside during harvest. All work I saw people were doing only by hand without machines. I like to think this way they pay tribute to the nature: not wasting, not growing too much, only what’s necessary.

Families get together and stay home, people get into shopping frenzy so […]

Canola fields in Yunnan’s Luoping

Every year in the early Spring people from all over China visit Luoping county to see with their own eyes stunning views created by blooming canola flowers. And there’s much to see as Qujing prefecture where Luoping is situated has the biggest concentrated area in the world dedicated to cultivate rapeseed alone.

Doesn’t sound too cold but with uninsulated houses lacking central heating, with untight windows indoor temperature can be as low as 5°C. It applies especially […]
