A Chinese Minority Village Wedding In Pictures

I’ve returned to China to visit my friend’s wedding in her rural village.  I met her weeks ago in my last trip to Xishuangbanna and promised to return when I heard a pig was being fattened for the feast.  Although most of China is Han Chinese (what you’re probably used to seeing), there are 56 minority groups living in the country.  My friend is Jinuo and her fiancé is Yi.  We got to enjoy the drinking customs and dances of both.  I’ll let the photos show the rest of the two days we attended.  It was quite the feast and party.

  2. Do you know that Ah Hong spend the next night after the wedding harvesting those ears of corn on the fields ? I wonder if that’s a typical village honeymoon !
