Foreign Travel


June, 2002
In traveling around Yunnan, I found many interesting people. I just couldn't help taking pictures of them. So, here is my collection of people pictures from around Yunnan. Some don't really have a story, but if they do, I have a little note below it. Cute Asian Kid on back
Tibetan Monks in Monastery facial expression tennis shoes
Notice their shoes and their facial expressions.

Cute Asian Girl with flowers in a field
This little girl was trying to trade her flowers for my watch. It was tempting.....

Cute Chinese Kids Bicycles confused photo
I was with two friends when we came back to our bicycles - there was this cute little kid playing on them. His mom came over and really liked us taking pictures of him and brought over another kid. I tried talking to his mother, but I couldn't understand her accent.

Chinese Lady With Sunglasses old new expression face
I particularly like the sunglasses.

Fun Chinese Girl In Yunnan
The friends I was traveling with and I played with this little girl for several hours. She was incredibly friendly. One night, we had about 7 kids playing with us. It was much fun.

Kyle Reed With Cute Tibetan Girl
Yes, the tall one on the right is me. This would have been a fun halloween costume.

Kid With Dead Animal chicken smiling
As I was walking along a market, I saw a chicken get killed - nothing new. But, I realized that I didn't have any pictures of this sort of thing, so I asked if I could take a picture. They were happy to let me, but they grabbed this checken and gave it to this litttle boy. He thought it was great fun to be holding a dead chicken and getting his picture taken.

Umbrellas On Chinese Tour Group in sunlight
Is it raining? No, it's just too sunny. On a hot day, I have also been known to pull out an umbrella. It looks strange, but it does keep me a little cooler. People here do it because they don't want to get dark - that is a sign of being a peasant.

This is a reburial ceremony.

Kyle Reed and friends
These are some of the friends I was traveling with. In this square in LiJiang, many people just sit around and talk. We talked to the guy in the middle of us for quite a while. He is the oldest man I have talked to with English as good as his. I generally find that younger people have better English.
