A most extraordinary time in China, we were lucky to always have with a family member who speaks Chinese, a must!
I learned so much from this trip, and the learning will continue any time I go there in the future.
It is a place, that if you let it, can become part of you as it did to me this time.
I loved the peacefulness of the people. There was silence even in mobs of thousands.
And beauty, quiet, silent beauty.
The women as so beautiful, their poise, and their lovely black hair. A pleasure to look and photograph them, even when only one is walking with the surroundings being either old as in this picture, or the newer exciting shopping malls.
Here is a village we visited one day, the name is Xidi, and the couple of hours there were not enough. There was too much to see and discover.
