A bit under the weather today (something I ate) so back to photos of scenes in China that aren't typically portrayed in the news. These are from Xizhou, Yunnan, a village not so far from the touristy town Dali (Xizhou is actually a part of the Dali "administrative region") and the location for this previously posted photo from a horse-cart. Xizhou is one of many villages in the area which offer a truer glimpse into the traditional culture of the Bai people, one of many minorities that can be found across Yunnan. However, even there you can find growing touches of Western culture, such as a basketball court.
