Here with pics that I took in the evening of 21th Feb. 2012. When I was in the flight from Kunming to Shenzhen. The sky looks very dirty after taking off a few minutes. Is it air pollution or just weather problem??? It looks serious if it’s air pollution. The atmosphere looks poisoning by brown wasters. We have lots of problems of environments those years. And weather is not as regular as before. Those pics are without any photoshop processing. I took with my Canon 550D+ 17-85 scene. Hope it’s just normal weather problem, What consequences will be if it’s real air pollution?... read more

D3. Plan for that day: West side of Mount. Putuo.- Not willing to go Guanyi temple – purple bamboo temple—Beaches West in our culture is not the luck side, if people said that he/she goes to west sky, means they die. And the pronunciation of West in Pinyin is similar “die”. East and south have been considered as good side for lucky for really long times, special east. They are only a few temples or sight spots at west side. And no bus to go there. So, hotels at west side are much cheaper. There are some commanding good view of rocks into west side. And it’s only 1 road, near Puji temple. It’s stones made a patch up hill from west of Puji temple. The stones road seen endless at the beginning, when passed by ... read more

The Hakkas are a unique ethnic group of "Han" Chinese originally active , mainly in south of China。They have their own langue and culture. My family is one of the traditional Hakkas. My grandfather told me that our original settlement was in middle of China. They were forcing to move to south for fighting. As a latecomer to places initially occupied by locals, Hakkas usually had to struggle and survive on the less desirable lands. Thus, Hakka people are well known for their perseverance even in the most adverse environment. And Watchtowers are created for prevention and defending at that time. There are many Diaolou all over Guangdong. The most famous is in Kaiping. They were approved as a national cultural heritage site in 2001, and were listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in ... read more
