The Stone Forest of Kunming

In our travelling, we get to see places & meet faces

To taste their local cuisine, speak their language or learn their culture

All add to the greater dimension of your life’s experiences.

Travelling is not meant for shopping

It’s wasting precious time looking for bargain

You’d shop in vain for lost time cannot be regained.

Most times you’d get to meet some of the nicest people

Even among the native or the minority

As may well be evidenced from these pictures:

 

 Some young & pretty

Others old but strong

Not just the scenic landscap

Human landscape provides cultural aspects

Overall, it’s the composite picture of life, places & faces, tradition & culture

that attract people to the place.

History lingers on while time progresses ahead . . .
