Gansu Province: On the Road
On the Road
September 4, 2016
Here's the thing I love about Independent Travel:
When I’m On the Road, I’m on the Road. I never know what I'll find.
Early today, it's a Livestock Market. Herders transport their cows or sheep or goats for sale or trade. Others come on a motorbike and buy a chicken for dinner.
Later today, I find two Minority Villages somewhere in the remote hills of Gansu Province.
I am quickly reminded that most little boys are rambunctious everywhere and most little girls are shy. And here in a simple agricultural village, the adults are universally welcoming and hospitable.
In one tiny community, the men prepare a special tea for their unexpected yet honored guests.
On the Road, I never know what I will find, or what I will eat or drink, or who I will meet.
That’s what I call my Joy of Travel.
