Photographer's Note


The Duoyishu terraced fields in Yuanyang changed their colors accordingly to the direction and height of sun against your point of view. If you were not here to witness by your own eyes, you would not believe it.

Yuanyang update 11-24-2005

Yuanyang is beutiful as you discribed it in your photos - tnx for sending me all the way up here.

the wether is not as nice as in your photos and it's fogy all morning and cloudy the rest of the day so it is hard to get good photos apart from closups as you can see in my last post in this site.

yesturday i just bumpt in to the only english speaking man in the city and went with him to his scool to teach an english lesen and it was grate (my spoken english is much better then my writen english )-; ).

all the girlg askt to hug me in class and they seng song for me and it's so grate to get thir love before they will be spoild by tourists....

today i went to the "tiger mouth" and was envited to spend the afternoon in a yi family.

the yi are the ones hwo have the two or more colorfull squers on their ass and usually blue strips on black trousers.

i dont have the teacher's e-mail on me but i'll send his e-mail to you for more ditails.

i dont have speller so i'll thenk you for corecting my spelling to my e-mail and i'll be able to corect it here.

i have more time to be here but for postprossesing i'll need a better computer with something more uptodait then win98...

if the wether allow me to take good pix i'll post them without p.p.

so you'll see my pix by the end of the year or sooner?!

Yuanyang update 11-25-2005

this is the "tiger-mouth" or "mong-pin" in closeup.

the place is some 18km from old yuanyang in lushen's direction. facing west it's a good location for shoting sunset (not the kind i had yesturday when i was there).

there are minibuses going there all the time along with a regular bus to lushen.

the best way is to go to the town 6km up the road and go back on foot and even visit the small Yi villige just before the scenic point.
