Yunnan Province/云南省

One time while in Yunnan, I looked out the window and said, “Oh my god, there are mountains!” My classmate from Yunnan just rolled her eyes and said, “Obviously! There are mountains EVERYWHERE in Yunnan!” It’s true. Yunnan is the place where every corner is stuffed to the gills with fabulous scenery, including completely different climates: high mountains, plateaus, rainforests, pine forests…you get the picture. Once in Yunnan, you’ll feel like you’ve entered another world. Definitely not the China you might have pictured, given all of the non-Han ethnic groups, too.

Yunnan is sort of like pandora’s box. Hidden inside are all kinds of things you can’t possibly imagine, but once you’ve opened it, it’ll never shut. Going to Yunnan once won’t be enough, going twice won’t be enough. I mean, it won’t be enough for a whole lifetime. This is because Yunnan encompasses every kind of attitude and every kind of natural sight. It has it all. As you can probably tell, I definitely favor this place…could it be that I’ve already opened the un-close-able box?

一次我在云南的时候,我看了窗外就说“哇塞有高山啊!”我云南同学就说“当然了!这是云南,哪里都有山的呀!”没错,云南就是到处都是大自然风光的省,包括好多完全不同的气候:高山,高原,雨林,丛林等。到云南,你就感到你进入了另一个世界,尤其是因为云南的少数名族很多。

云南有点像潘多拉盒子,因为里面藏着你意想不到的东西,但是你一开,就关不了。去云南一次不够,两次也不够。反正,你一生也去不腻。这就是因为云南什么样的风格,什么样的自然都有。我自己比较偏爱有大自然的地方……难道我自己也关不了那个小盒子吗?
