THE MOUNTAINS CAN TALK…

Tuesday July 19 2011

After 3 straight weeks of heavy production/factory work – I decided to take a break and visit my friend’s new hotel in the Liannan Mountains in Southern China. I met up with Calvin Yu, who I consider one of my best friend’s, also who was awarded top 10 most successful businessmen in China year 2010. He arranged for a car to take me up to the mountains where he reserved a suite for me in his new hotel. In Chinese culture, when someone of power tells you to do something, you usually should abide. This time I easily and gladly accepted his request. On the ride up, I was told that these mountains were greatly undiscovered and these roads were just put up 6 months ago. As the highway ended – we went off road for another 45 minutes before arriving at his hotel and the base of a range of mountains. After a perfect night’s rest we left the hotel early in the morning and began to ascend up the mountain. As we began our trek, I was given another surprise, as my friend was bringing me to visit a small town of 1000 people that have inhabited the top of these mountains for over 1800 years. On top of this, we were going to have dinner and spend the night in this ancient village. The views and pictures I took during this journey were awe-inspiring and simply breathe taking. As I reached the top of the mountains and peered back, my mind and body were simply elevated to another level, I felt as if I reached a new level of clarity. This “high” will never be forgotten and these mountains will be revisited many times in the future.
