The predecessor of the Small Train of the Ancient City of Jianshui (建水古城小火车) is the Gebishi Railway.
The Gebishi Railway or Gejiu–Bisezhai–Shiping Railway (个(个旧)碧(碧色寨)石(石屏)铁路) was the product of Chinese resistance to France’s further economic penetration into Yunnan (云南). In the early twentieth century, France built the Yunnan–Haiphong Railway (滇越铁路) to connect French Indochina with South China. The Railway gave France access to Yunnan’s rich natural resources. In May 1910, to prevent France from gaining access to the tin mines in Gejiu (个旧), 48 industrialists petitioned to Li Jingxi (李经義), the last Viceroy of Yun-Gui of the Qing Dynasty, for the construction of the Gebishi Railway. The Qing Dynasty fell shortly after and, in March 1912, the industrialists petitioned again. This time, then Governor of Yunnan Cai E (蔡锷) granted the petition. Construction of the Gebishi Railway started on May 15, 1915 using, ironically, equipment by Decauville, a French manufacturing company.

Into the unknoooooown~ read about my hike in Yubeng (Yunnan, China) on wheresjanice.com // yesterday I was thinking about what camera to upgrade to for travel photography 🤪 open to suggestions! Currently using Sony a6000
Perhaps idealistically, it is scenes like this where tea’s brilliant magic and alchemy come together for me. On one of my first visits to Yiwu and the domain of the slightly smaller leafed varietals, destined for Puerh cakes, bags, balls, and cylinders. No price tags affixed, no rampant marketing quite yet, and no questions about the integrity of the source. Here, on this day out back a small home all tools and efforts are simple, tangible, and necessary for the leaves’ journey. Sheets of mist curled around our little tea station out back a home, a woman’s hands churning the slightly withered leaves within a scarred pan and the stimulant fuel, tea, lying everywhere in its different stages. Dried leaves, wet leaves, leaves in the process of having moisture sucked from its bodies...and cups of the stuff off to the side to fuel and hydrate. And then the offering of a cup, which comes with little ceremony and few words. #tea#tealife#jefftea#cha#yiwu#puerh#shengpuerh#yunnan#teapeople#teamoments#teahorseroad@teaexplorerfilm@jalamteas#theteaexplorer
Pour mon 1500e post, j'ai voulu faire original (non).
J'ai donc gardé les fondamentaux : le thé, les cookies et la musique traditionnelle.
Pour les anciens : Sharky se porte bien, il est en vacances dans les abysses.
Nous avons donc un assortiment de cookies au chocolat noir 65%, aux désormais légendaires noisettes du Piémont et par-ci, par-là une petite crème caramel à la fleur de sel.
Avec également du beurre salé dans la recette histoire de prendre bien soin de sa tension 😬
Élus meilleurs cookies de Paris par des personnes de goût 😇
Pour le thé, Douceur Sauvage, une thé noir du Yunnan provenant de théièrs sauvages millénaires qui poussent dans les forêts de la montagne Damaoer.
Ce Gu Shu Dian Cha vient du cultivar Da Ye Zhong. @gouttedethe
Pour la musique de la vidéo, direction Oulan-Bator en Mongolie avec le groupe @thehuofficial Et oui, le heavy metal mongol ça existe et c'est super cool !!
Et toi, tu mets quoi sur tes cookies ? 😜
Et tu écoutes quoi pour te détendre ? 😏

Happy Lunar New Year 🧧
This is a shot of me in the highlands of Yunnan Province a week after crossing the border of Laos and China, back in 2007. In those days, I was on a year-long overland backpacking trip from Thailand to India. It was both a marvellous and challenging time in my life that made a significant impact on the woman I would become. But at the precise moment that this photo was taken, I had no idea of the self-transformative journey that was just about to unfold.
About 30 years ago, a flock of seagulls landed at my hometown. Although the city was next to a huge lake, for a land-lock place surrounded by huge mountains, that was a big surprise. I remember my homework back then was to write an essay about the 'rare' birds.
The bird discovered the lake and the city during their migration. We all thought their stay was a coincidence. However, every year since then, they have come during the winter and stayed for a few months. The people made friends with the seagulls. Parks were made to see them. If they decide to take a rest on the road, the traffice will stop.
Steps: Boil the chicken feet for 10 minutes, mix it with millet pepper and other seasonings. Done! #food#dianxi#yunnan#delicious#savoryfood#meat
