As one might expect, a wedding in Sichuan revolves around food! 10 rotations of 10 tables of 10 guests over 2 days—food for 1000 #wedding #food #sichuan #rural #china
I attended a wedding in China on their national holiday week—with a fleet of 12 cars driving through narrow mountain roads to go get the bride 2h away and back, stacks of cash presented to the bride’s parents, loads of other similar wedding car delegations that day (very problematic in the narrow mountain roads), 200m of firecrackers leading the cars on the last stretch back. Quite a trek and quite an experience

Feel pretty fortunate seeing the Arctic Circle after having flown over the Sahara deserts a few months back (check my feed)! #arctic #flyover #moon #twilight #gradient #polar #icecaps #texture
