The Meili Snow Mountains: Kawagebo Peak is Yunnan's highest and most sacred. Though attempts have been made, it has never been successfully climbed and many have died trying. And since 2001, a law was passed banning any future attempts on cultural and religious grounds. Tibetans believe disaster will follow if humans set foot on its peak. This and many other of my photographs on Tibetan topics are on exhibit, at the Modern Art Academy, Bridge 8 in Shanghai. #yunnan#Kawagebo#songtsam#Kawagarbo#meilisnowmountain ...

Morning commute for the rice farmers of Yuanyang. These two farmers start their day, everyday, before the sun even begins to rise. A lot of effort and hard work so that we can enjoy the humble bowl of rice 🍚 ...
Photo by Fritz Hoffmann @fritzphotos | This photo was shot for the National Geographic magazine story "Searching for Shangri-La." On their arduous pilgrimage to circle the sacred mountain Kawagebo, Tibetan pilgrims approach the 14,721-foot pass to cross into Tibet from Yunnan Province, China. The once-in-a-lifetime journey takes two weeks. Camping far below the pass with my Tibetan assistant, I heard the pilgrims passing me in the middle of the night, when drifting in and out of sleep under a thick wool Tibetan blanket covered with frost. I woke and gave chase in the dark. At daybreak on the pass, I waited several hours for pilgrims to come into my frame. I was an unexpected sight, there, alone with my camera. I greeted them with "Tashi delek," the only Tibetan greeting I knew. They smiled and returned the greeting. If they could speak Mandarin, we conversed.

4. 倒入抹了油的模具，冷却凝固 【Dessert Series】——Tamarind Cake
Hello everyone~ This post will share the recipe of “Tamarind Cake” to you ~
In the village, there used to be a big and old Tamarind tree that had started to grow Tamarind Fruits when my grandfather was a child. Every time after school, the seniors climbed to the tree to pick Tamarind Fruits. We would also habitually gather under the tree and expect to be able to share one or two fruits. Sometimes, when Dad came back home, he would buy some for me, but I always felt that the Tamarind Fruit on the old tree was preferable.
Tamarind Fruits, Maltose, White granulated sugar, A small amount of agar powder, oil
1. Peel off the husks, rinse by clean water and soak them for a night.
2. Stir these fruits until the pulp is separated from the core. Filtrate the pulp and cores that are insoluble in water.
3. Simmer and add Maltose, White granulated sugar and a small amount of agar powder. Simmer the fruit pulp until it gets sticky and form evenly large bubbles.
4. Smear some oil on molds and pour in the fruit pulp. Cool down the fruit pulp and wait for it to solidify.
