Far from everywhere? No! Even more far! :) Please dive in!
We’ve decided to take the rare challenge and make a short track from Xiding to several nearby villages. It wasn’t an easy decision, since some tribes and villages even don’t speak Mandarin Chinese. Luckily, we’ve cooperated with an English guy (hello, Sam!) and moved ahead.
First day was easy more or less. We’ve started from Xiding and finished in a village called Zhanlang (I am more or less sure about the name and can’t find it on the maps). We’ve stayed there for the night – locals usually see the tourists and call them by making gestures that simulate eating or sleeping. Guests are expected to leave some money upon departure.
Second day we made a fabulous track through the spectacular fields to some other village (sorry, forgot the name) and from there we were lucky enough to take a truck back to Xiding (we’ve stand at the back of the truck for 2 hours and it wasn’t for free :).
It’s not that easy both because of the language and because of the absence of any kind of pointers or signs but trekking off the beaten path in Xishuangbanna definitely worth it.

We've finally nailed down the basic colors from primary to secondary; now it's time to study other colors, hybrids, and palettes that make this world more complex and non-binary. We run in gradients, and such is the sky and its twilight wedge.
