My visit to many herdsman’s camp during my 2 weeks trip at North Xinjiang, was very memorable and eye-opening.
The herdsman move to the mountains with their lambs and cows to avoid the hot summer. Their camps are mobile and very simple. Seeing at how they are living so happily with their minimal need as compared to us, the city dwellers, never be satisfied with what we have and take for granted, I am learning to appreciate things more.
I was shy to keep snapping photos at their home when I was visiting, so I tried my best to remember every single details and draw them out so I would not forget!
