Heading into Jingxi............
Meeting with the Da Mo High and Middle School girls
They had been given 200 yuan from sponsors
and been asked to go shop for themselves.
And were reading them while we had lunch!
Time for off!
High School girls back to school in Jingxi
Middle school were allowed some time off to come and see their own province's beauty spots!
This is an old town, slowly being restored to show tourists a bit of old China.
Families live there amidst this amazing scenery,
work in the fields, fish, embroider and maintain traditional skills.
The girls watched, fascinated as the ladies explained to them the techniques to make the Love Balls
You can check out more here about the tradition behind these Guangxi Love Balls
We had a wonderful time too, sharing with the girls as tourists in their beautiful countryside!
and so special to share it with the Da Mo girls.
Jingxi Town is changing so fast, the old being replaced by the new...but here it is as if time has stood still
The old ways.........
