Playing in Xianju

Recently a former student asked me to spend the weekend with her family in a town about 3 hours away by bus.  She was proud to show me the beautiful landscape of mountains, forest and water. We climbed the mountain with her 11 year old cousin who is just learning English.

On the way back across, I slipped on the stepping stones and fell into the water. Pretty embarrassing. The girl in the left of the photo was crossing the stream in spiked high heels, but protected from the sun by the umbrella.
