Evening Bicycle Ride

Yesterday I rode my normal route from Four Lakes, through E-Liao, E-Lun, BoZiLiao, SanTiaoLun, Flying Sands (and a few other villages), and home again. On the way, I was able to stop as usual at the tea shop in E-Lun, chat for a few minutes with a number of acquaintances at the basketball court in Flying Sands and the park in Four Lakes, and see these young people finishing up their wall mural in SanTiaoLun (more of these murals seem to be popping up in every countryside village in recent months). Most of it was done by kids but now the older folks are taking over…


Have Some Cake

DSC00193 In Huwei, about a half hour from here, is a towel factory. On the day we went, tourists were everywhere. What attracts them to a place like this? The towels are shaped into lollipops, cakes, pies, etc. Check it out sometime if you’re in the area. But if you go, be careful to keep the rules (last picture below), especially the first one (sorry for the poor pic quality, had to use my cell phone camera on this visit).
