A gallery of photos taken on 28 October 2001 in Gao Zhai village, Bai Jin township, Huishui county, Guizhou province. The Miao villagers are known as 'Iron Beating Miao' although there is no obvious reason for that visible today. We were greeted by 4 little girls resplendent in their festival costumes who danced for us. They were then joined by three women and 4 men who played lusheng pipes and continued the dances. We had a small demonstration of embroidery - particularly couched outlines - and we were able to buy some textiles from the older women. top

A gallery of photos taken on 7 September 1998 at Nge Phe Kyaung monastery This is an attractive wooden monastery built on stilts over the lake at the end of the 1850s.  The monks have taught a few of the many cats living with them to jump through hoops.  It is for this reason - following a request for photos of the jumping cats - that this photo gallery has been assembled from a few photos of the monastery, monks and cats. top
