Yuhu Village Woman - NFS

"Yuhu Village Woman", 9" x 7", Oil on Museum Board
Yuhu Village is a small community outside of Lijiang, China, right at the foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Each day the villagers would bring their horse or mule to a central area and load up the tourists to go up the mountain. These were almost all Chinese tourists.  In this travel link you can see the guest house where we stayed with the mountain behind.  There was no central heating and we were at about 8000 feet elevation, so you can imagine how welcome the electric blanket was at night! The daughter of the couple in the link, who were the proprietors, worked for the Nature Conservancy in China.  The food was unimaginably good!
