Photographer's Note


On Feb 25, 2005, my friend ngythanh met me at Lao Cai Train Station, after he exited from Yuanyang, China. As he knew that I gained the nickname "Nhiem-Sapa" with a credit of over 30 visits to Sapa, he told me, "you've got to come to Yuanyang, and change your nickname!"
No, I don't have the dream of changing a nickname that friends gave to me. But his advice raised in me a burning curiosity.
In June 2005, I went to YY and came back with a failure. After that trip, I knew that I came at a wrong time of the year. Thanh and I made up a plan: we will both return to YY in Feb 2007.
We finally made it along with another TE friend: Steve. What we got from this trip is we enjoyed good time together, and great friendship via TrekEarth. Otherwise, I hope my humble contribution will help promote this destination as UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site, as Thanh and I will join in the related theme, Yuanyang for UNESCO World Heritage.

Please enjoy and critique. Thanks.
