Today I visited the Yunnan Minorities Cultural Village in Kunming with Aron, a cousin of a friend Linda, whom I studied with in Adelaide. It's nice to know people who know people. The minorities cultural village is host to 26 minority cultures, each with their own particularities in terms of language, religion, and in the ways of conducting themselves in relation to others, in attire, eating habits, the way of travelling, festivities, marriage, birth and burial customs. Aron mentioned that a lot of western people don't travel to visit this wonderful place which I think is a shame. The cultural clothing was incredible, so bright and detailed.
