This week, the Daily Post Photo Challenge is all about doors…
One of the unplanned stops on our roadtrip, was to a remote village, because the name intrigued us – Radish Village.
We did expect to see lots of radishes – which we didn’t; but were surprised to discover that this remote village is now a tourist attraction, and you’ll soon see why.
When we arrived at the top of a very long and steep mountain road, we saw a very newly built, touristy parking area, with stalls and a ticket booth. We had arrived at Radish Village in Sichuan province, situated 2000km above sea level. After the 2008 earthquake, many homes were destroyed. The village is now completely rebuilt, with modern homes and is a tourist destination, rather than just an ordinary farming village.
The photos I took all tell a story.
