Rice terraces in China
Thought for the day…” Do not make excuses, make improvements”.
“Expecting and accepting are two sides of life. Expecting can end in tears, but accepting will bring you cheers”.
A photo from the south west part of China for the photo today, from Yunnan province. Around 45 million people live in this province, which borders Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar. The western part is mountainous, with the peaks reaching over 5000m. Ethnic groups make up about 1/3 of the population, so local dialects and colourful local costumes are very much evident in the towns and markets here. The hills in the west border the Tibet autonomous region, with deep valleys and hillside farming. It is also very rich in minerals, so mining is very important, as is agriculture. Seen here are some rich terraces not far from the border with Tibet.
