Photographer's Note


Ni hao?

For thousand years, Hani minority people live their farming life with terraced fields extending from mountain to mountain. There was little change, little new, little update. Rarely they have seen strange people from other places to arrive. No tourism industry here. As a result, when foreign travelers show up in town, local residents look at them with round eyes with no less curiosity than the foreign travelers themselves surprisingly view the immensity of fields or lovely colors on the Hani traditional costumes.

Welcome to Yuanyang!

(Photo taken at Yuanyang bus station. This boy has been in line with me while we bought the bus ticket. Later, I found out he was with his mom on same bus with me just behind my seat while he was suffering a bad cholera. Even though we failed to break the language barrier, I believe I have been able to read his pain, which made me daring and stupid enough to search my luggage and offered him an adult dose of Imodium and Ciprofloxacin. My risky decision has helped stopping him the effect of cholera, that in turn helped the driver of the bus to not stop for him after a dozen times during our 200-km-trip between Yuanyang to the border of Vietnam in Hekou.)
