I took a walk in the countryside today with my friends Rich and Sharon Johnson. Sharon had mentioned a small village north of the city that she’d come across while biking, saying it was a cool little place with a Buddhist temple and a friendly vibe. We headed out into the omnipresent grey muck that is a Liuzhou winter with the idea that Rich and Sharon could try out some photo tips and dial in a new lens before they head to the beaches of Boracay for their Spring Festival break.
Here’s a bit of what we saw…
It was a nice break… getting out of the city for a while and (most) of the people were very warm. A couple of the gals there at the outdoor laundromat were trying to figure out why the heck I was sticking a camera in their face. I love getting out into the country and visiting the locals. Lots of old folks and kids and definitely a place to head back to when it’s warmer. 47 days with no sunshine. I kid you not… except for a brief window a few afternoons ago… 47 days.
Soooooo… I could use a beach about now. I am trying to figure out a way to convince The Johnsons that I should tag along and document their vacation. Or carry bags… or something.
Home for a month and it feels nice.
