The 3 day trip we made across Aba Zhou prefecture in Sichuan was a great, educational and bonding experience. We participated in a local Tibetan wedding, ate delicious cumin flavored, spicy fried potato wedges, sat by a small bond fire and shared our stories as we bonded over locally brewed Chinese homemade alcohol. We visited Tibetan Buddhist Temples and Monasteries, learned the essence of photographing beautiful landscapes, pagodas and the people’s movements against The Golden Hour…when the sun sets and the shadows are vivid and the sky filled with golden and orange sun-lit rays. On one memorable night, we even climbed a hill against the cold evening winds and patiently captured the magical Milky Way using a long exposure. In the morning, we drank delicious creamy butter yak tea and devoured tasty, organic omelet sandwiched in toasted bread spread with jam and peanut butter as we prepared for the journey back to reality in Chengdu. Definitely an unforgettable 3 day magical trip.
