Two weeks ago, one of our friends of the school, told us about a Hiking group where she use to go in the weekends. Of course, we join then.
There is no anything necessary to be part of the “Healthy hiking walkers”; just a good shoes, some food and lots of energy to walk almost 30 km across the Chinese jungle¡
This time, the path starts in a small village in the border of Laos, “Meng La”.
The group was so big, more than 50 people, but just 3 could speak some English, so it was a good chance to practice our language skills¡ During the morning we didn’t stop laughing… Dancing and singing Chinese songs, talking with all the members, and of course, tons of pictures with all them ¡ Despite almost all the people were older than us, they could walk much faster, so next time, we should be prepare…
After 4 hours walking… time for eat¡ As a good family, all the people shared their delicious food with us, so we tried a lot of special dishes of Xishuangbanna (the region where we are living). Of course, there was also lots of alcohol, (all the people wanted to cheers with us), popular dances and some Chinese games.
After a little snap, time to walk again in the amazing landscapes of Chinese rural areas. Small villages, tropical jungles, nature everywhere… just a paradise¡
And finally… we reach the end of the path¡ For sure, one of the best experiences since we are here, but travelling this place without this people, it wouldn’t be the same….
