While my friends in Europe curse the renewed onset of winter, Chengdu (成都, south-west China) enjoys a meteorological curiosity around this time - kind of like a warmup for summer. For two weeks, everything heats up, and unfortunately, stirs up lots of dust as well.
So, what better way to avoid the dust storms than to take a short, 2-hour bus trip to one of China's oldest tea growing areas - Meng Shan. Reputedly the birthplace of Chinese tea cultivation, it's somewhere to escape, breath the fresh mountain air, and watch preparations for the upcoming Spring tea harvest.
Later on I'll bore you with the details, but for now, here's a few shots I took on the mountains that hopefully will speak for themselves!
