麗江風情- LiJiang KunMing, China


丽江大研鎮的大水車800年來不停地转动,
讓玉龍雪山的水流到古城每一戶,
生生不息


顾彼得笔下的丽江是热闹的,但相信當时没有今日的燈火般迷離


华灯初上,人朝还没涌现时,
丽江显得異常的宁静,我愛靜謐的古城


纳西老妇穿著披星戴月服飾,
每天定時在四方街跳阿哩哩(打跳),整齊有序,
遊客也忍不住加入行列


一大清早,现代马帮走進四方街,
马背上没有茶叶或其他货品。
只要付些小费,你也可騎在馬背上,
當個威風凜凜的現代马锅头


入夜后的麗江,多了一份囂鬧,
酒吧一條街響起各種樂曲和舞蹈,
濃妝艷抹的潘金妹和客人搭訕,
單身客人最愛在這里獵艷,
這就是麗江的柔軟時光。

My first visit to Lijiang in year 2003 with a group of teachers and education officials. LiJiang, an ancient town with over 800 years of history is located in the northern part of KunMing province. I was mesmerized by its beauty and charms. 

In early 1940's, Peter Goullart, a Russian, was sent here to help setting up cooperative societies for the local people. He wrote a book entitled- Forgotten Kingdom. I found it interesting and aroused me to learn more of this ancient town. And I promised myself to come back here in future. 

These images were taken last month in LiJiang where I stayed inside the old town for few nights.
