Man from Yuhu Village
There were hardly any western tourists in Yuhu Village--I think we saw one American. But the people were not keen on having their photos taken, so we had to be careful. This man, sitting on a doorstep with another old guy and a child didn't seem to mind. Although the buildings and houses were made of stone, the doors were sometimes painted a orangish brown. It was about a mile from the village up to the base of 18,000 foot Snow Dragon Jade Mountain, and we hiked up a little ways on the trail late one afternoon, along with some Chinese tourists in high heels.
