A home cooked meal along the hike through the terraced fields of The Dragon's Backbone. This lovely woman invited myself and my friend to come to her home for lunch. The woman is a member of the Zhuang minority group, indigenous to the the part of China.
In this photo she is preparing sweet potatoes as a side to the pork and green beans she also made.
This was one of my most memorable experiences because it was one of the first times that speaking Mandarin while on a trip helped me to see something off the beaten path. A truly unique experience that not many have had.
