The next part of the trip was a complete change of pace, as we arrived in Nande village for our Miao homestay. Nande has a long history, but a recent event - the arrival of the Olympic torch - has taken on huge significance, with a section of the tiny museum dedicated to it.

The village itself was charming, with big (cold!) wooden houses clinging to the hillside.

The Miao ladies excel at needlework and haggling.

The highlight for me was a special performance put on for us by the whole village, with young and old giving up their time to dance, sing and play the lusheng for us.
