Epilogue :

Junshandao has been one of the most inspiring places visited. Strolling through Bamboo thicks which cover the Island, I got lost in a remote part of the Island, the trails suddenly disappeared as vapor.
I stood in front of the gigantic lake shores, gazing into the vast space.
Fog hanging deep to the bottom, penetrating the Bamboo Forests, one feels strange, in solitude, imagining the restless spirits of Xiang Fei and Liu Yi passing.
48 Temples give this Island a unique position in Chinese Historical places.
I for one, fell in love with it.
Although I covered the Island on foot, I must go back to do some further soul search,
on the Island of Junshandao, strolling through the Bamboo Forest of lost souls, perhaps finding
more than beauty, inspiration, peace and sanctuary, just as Folks and Nobles did so over a thousand

So, so you think you can (D) tell
Heaven from (AM) Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war,
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Cowslips of Tibet

We were on the verge of hiking up to dwindling heights; our two horses arrived at morning.
Her aunt was 6 month pregnant, yet she took the 6 hours ride to the valley without difficult.
When the aunt arrived she carried a bunch of the most beautiful cowslips I ever saw in my life.
Yellow and purple colored, colors so nice and full of life.
In my youth we were collecting Cowslips in Austrian alpine region as a present for mom, here, I saw the same gesture to welcome a stranger.

We continued with our Ascent on foot, nevertheless,
only our heavy packs were carried by the two horses.

Needless to say, it was the same aunt who rode back to
her domicile in 4000 m.
