So it was our last day in Yangshuo and we had managed to book a meeting and sunset shoot with Mr Huang, a traditional cormorant fisherman turned insta-model.
We couldn't wait.
BUT, at 4pm, it started pouring with rain.. Now, it had been raining the whole trip, but those lasted a few minutes. This was different. It just didn't stop. Shoes, pants and top were wet. Even my underwear!
But we weren't worried about that. Our question was would the rain stop before we were to meet Mr Huang? We could only wait and see.
Luckily, it stopped 45 minutes before our meeting!
We met Mr Huang by the river side. His distinctive long white beard and pair of fierce looking cormorants gave a glimpse of what the Li River would have been like decades ago.
The moment was perfect! The karst mountains was such a perfect backdrop that I stopped taking photos and just sat and watched the sun disappear.
I've met many amazing characters during my travels, but Mr Huang is by far my favorite, his smile has a magical calming presence. Pure serenity.
These moments are the ones I never forget and what I love about traveling! I'm already planning our next adventure.
