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.

Photo of the day Wednesday 5th December 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell

Thought for the day…” Coincidence is fate breaking a lock so you can open a door.”

The Danish capital of Copenhagen is today’s photo, and a row of terraced houses not far from the city centre.   About 1.2 million people live in the city.  It was originally a walled city, with entry possible in only three places (Vesterport, Norreport and Osterport).  The city has been under siege twice (once by the Swedes, and once by the English).   Copenhagen is often recognized as one of the cities with the highest quality of life, and also the happiest people.  It is said to have one of the highest numbers of restaurants and bars per capita in the world.

Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
