Day 2~ October 2nd~ Yunnan

Hani child in door~ Mushroom village~Yunnan

Please meet one of the Hani minority children from the rice terraces of beautiful Yunnan. This child lives in a charming little house called “mushroom house” because his people were inspired by mushrooms to design these homes after many years of living in caves. In his home he has pigs, a water buffalo, chicken, ducks, cats, dogs, generations of family members and many colorful dried seeds and pumpkins. To go to school everyday, the children must walk down a valley and up a mountain, the journey takes more than an hour each way. Their smiles are guaranteed to melt your heart!

Day One Hundred Ninety Seven, August 7, 2011

the insect tamer

Every once in a while you meet a child who is so attracted and attractive to the little people of the planet that they are seen constantly surrounded by little critters. Lexi is such a child. He loves to observe and be around anything that crawls, flies, swims, slithers… anything that is moving really. He is the child the dragonfly chooses to land on and linger, and the one that the little baby lizard likes be with and who plots to take one of the Gibraltar apes back home in the car!
