Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.

Anthony Bourdain

Miao Attire

The Miao are famous for their traditional costumes and wonderful embroidery. Women wear black tunics and pleated skirts, or calf-length black trousers with short black skirts, or maroon or colored jacket or shirt with a colorful vest along with distinctive headdresses strung with silver ornament.

In fact most Miao groups derive their name from the attire of their womenfolk.
