Faces of Sichuan 2


Through the school gate, my hubby snapped this picture of these  eager, happy  boys. It looked like school was over. Kids were also seen sweeping  the compound, unsupervised, and doing a good job. We showed the lads the picture taken and they asked  for more! Alas, our group was moving on and we had to catch up.

Anyone for a ride on the yak? This beauty attracted the attention among a few of us who paid 10 yuan to hop on the animal. Cameras clicked. This hunk of meat with  the 2 curvy, piecing horns looked docile enough!
A little nippy in the air but  anything goes for their big day. They posed by the river where  there's a huge waterwheel . We were in ShangLi Ancient Town when  I caught sight of  the bride alighting from the car. 
They wanted to be photgraphed and how they just lined themselves up!  Whaddayya say about discipline??

Giving me his cheeky smile as he saw me turning the camera lens on him.  At Hailuogou Glacier Park, we wandered around , looking out but nary a chance to see THAT glacier.  Wholly blanketed by the fog. Well, another time...

A young  lady looking after a booth  selling  food snacks at the observation platform in Hailuogou Glacier Park.

A visitor to Hailuguo Glacier Park too.  

In the town area of  Hailuogou, this girl was curious and not camera shy. Such a lovely smile for strangers!

These kids were seen playing among kids ! ( the four footed kind)
Her gloves were blackish brown as she chipped away the kernel to reveal  the walnut inside.

It was proving to be futile to snap the waiters and waitresses in this hotel as they moved about to serve the guests. Until this lady posed for us upon special request after dinner was over. I specially wanted  a momento of the uniform as the hotel is named  Long March  International Hotel.
