Our trip to the North West was mainly to visit some friends and for cultural exploration. On that front, we were abundantly rewarded. In these pages, I will tell more of the stories while respecting the privacy of our friends.
In the mean time, we were also treated to some amazing scenery. On the way to visit a friend in a small town among the Sala ethnic group (撤拉族), we passed by a small village set in the rolling hills. I don’t even know the name of the village. But the views were so stunningly beautiful that we have to stop to have a look. It was definitely worth it.
It was cold, just a bit below freezing. But it was sunny and the air was still. The sky was so clear we could see a long long way away. It was truly breath taking.
