Cutting off the Beard and Longji Rice Terrace

It was about time for that thing to go.  What better place to get my beard chopped off than a street barber in my favorite city in China…?  And so, here is a little picture progression of my curbside beard cut.

Its weird because I don’t think I’ve ever posted a photo of myself on the blog, let alone a bunch of them.  Don’t fret though, I have added a travel picture as well to quench your photo thrust.  Enjoy :)

First off, here is a shot from the Rice Terraces of Longji.  Hiking up the mountain was a bit strenuous, but when we reached the top, the magical view over the Rice Terraces made it all worth it.  Here is my favorite shot from the day.

And now for the fun shots.

There you go, all clean again.  Thanks to Anna for taking the photos with my iphone for me :)

    That was such a fun post :). What a unique experience – I mean, how many people can say they had their beard shaved off in an outside “barbershop” in a little village in China. Wow!! I love the last shot with both of you smiling :).

    I always love your photos. I love the barber series. I did this one on Jim in Turkey http://rovingvails.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=3910&action=edit. It would be cool to do one in each country…lol.

    clean shaven and handsome again. However you do not look like a backpacker anymore, just an average tourist.

    You are brave to let a street barber you don’t know use a straight razor on you. On another note every time I post a comment I have to fill out the complete form although I am a subscriber to your site? Glad to see the face of the person taking all the wonderful images you share!
