I absolutely loved Yangshuo and the Li River.  You can have your photo taken with a cormorant for a fee, but they really are used for fishing too.


Water buffalo are everywhere, and they enjoy a cool swim in the early evening.

There is plenty of food in this fertile area.

This is my favourite photo – a timeless scene of peasant life.
But can you see the pylon in the background?
