PhotoStory 0007: Fishing with birds in Yangchou, China

Photos taken 2007-01-17, (Jan. 17th) at the river close to Yangchou ( utside Gui-Lin) in China.

I got a suggestion to find a photo where I got involved with some local traditions - and most times I did something like that - I was to busy to ask someone to take photo of me - so I post some more touristy ones...

I this aria they used to use birds for fishing - and as we were standing there wathing the riverlife and nice view (actually the mountains in the top photo is the same view as the motive used for the 20 yuan money note in China )


- this old man crossed the river ..


- comes up to us and -

- and imidiately put on me the hat - and the stick with the birds on... - so there I was - all ready to go fishing ;)


to bad the sun was against the camera - so you cant really se my face...



ps please comment the photo if you like, and grade it from 0 to 10(best) after your liking

A little hello from China

A little hello from China


j
Now then I was writing this, It was actually my last night in China for this time, and so far I have not written any about china... I got problem with the connection, so the last bits are written from a hotel in Phnom Penh in Cambodia....

The size of china is so big, that I probably easily could have used many months (or years) here and still not see any close to everything... So I decided...
2
to do the most typical touristspots, (summer palace,the great wall, the forbidden city in Beijing, and the terracotta warriers in Xi'an) and also a more typically chinese city, like Wuhan (not much tourists here), and I also had plans to go to Gui Lin for to see the very nice nature sight there... but after catching a cold on the nighttrain from Xi'an to Wohan, and finding out that Wuhan - Gui Lin - Guangzhou = 28 hours more train, I decide to prolong my visit here in Wuhan.

the 21st I go by airplaine to Cambodia...

China has been a remarkeble experience, and a real mix of new and old, tradition and modernism... And all the time I find the chineese way to be much the same as back in Norway, just with a little (or bit twist/difference ;-) ) and other things are so different, that I have to learn it from the start again... like going to the toilet.... doing shopping in the right procidier, learn how to cross the road while the cars ar passing you both in front and behind you... and eating more than one dish at a time.... hehe some of this ideas I like so much I like to contingue then I finally will be home, and others are not so easy likeable :-)

I already stayed longer in China than planned, but I like to stay longer, - but in the same time I also want to see the "rest of Asia" so its soon time for me to depart for this time, but I travel out of asia from Beijing, so I will be back in January, and hopefulle have some more time here then :-) - and maybe a chance to meet friends again... :-)

Well its time to close of my letter before my time runs out here... as always I like to write more, but... I keep it short better tham nothing, - and also note me some keywords for later , then I get home to tell you more :-)

bye... ps I have some more photoes from N-Korea comming out soon on www.meihack.org + videoclips,... check the pages often, as Roar would help me post them almost dayly....)
(Webmaster Roar says: There have been added several pictures lately, check them out in the gallery!)


pss
other funny things I experienced in China,
* People (mainly chineese female tourists) stop me to be taken photo of together with me... almost feel like a celebraty sometimes.... hehe it feels funny, and results in a lot of smiles.
* Asians (used to the squat-toilet) staying at the youth Hostel in Xi'an don't like to sit on the "western sitting WC"there, so they sit/stand on the toilet seat, - leaving footprints all over the seat....
