Home Cookin’

China is hard – possibly the most difficult country I have travelled. it was also one of the most rewarding, certainly the most surprising, land of mists, elusive and mysterious and at the same time open, charming and disarming.

This young man appears to be preparing a banquet sized meal on the edges of the Li River in the south of China – somewhere between Guilin and Yangshuo. Keep Beijing – if I ever get back – I’m heading straight to this spot!

I’ve had quite a few queries as to what else was goin gon in the river nearby. Here is another image from directly across the way. This image doesn’t satisfy in quite the same way, though. Thus, it is an add-on, not its own post…

  1. Sort of… the people seemed to live both on land and on the river. There were hundreds of these rafts, tied together in various configurations, definitely used for fishing and food preparation and as taxi services to the next village/settlement. But there were also large, covered portions, some of which were definitely ‘rooms.’ I wish I had had more time to spend there and really learn about their way of life…


  2. I love these dwellings, right on the water. Of course, during storms and floods, they are not so lovely. But to cook a meal in the open surrounded by nature, what a wonderful concept.
