The Sun and the Moon

Yesterday was great.  Met some wonderful people, experienced the most hair-raising drive of my life through windy mountain roads in a questionable, late-80’s model, falling-apart van, hiked up to the beautiful Rice Terraces outside of Guilin, and visited a unique little minority village.

Heading out in a few to cruise down the Li River in a Bamboo Boat (pretty sure its just plastic, but the scenery should still be fantastic).  The next 4 days I will be biking and trekking around some of the most beautiful scenery in China, so get ready for tons of new material!

Today I wanted to share a photo from inside the Guilin city center.  The Sun and the Moon Pagodas sit quietly in the middle of the Four Lakes, surrounded by a bustling Chinese “village” or roughly 620,000 people.  Yup, that’s what a village is in China.  An awesome little spot to spend the evening shooting, posing (I must have take pictures with 15 different people over the course of 2 hours), and listening to music.  Very cool place.

Thanks for visiting!
