Photographer's Note

Dadun is a Bao'an village up in the hills around Dahejia in south-western Gansu. It's a couple of hours' walk from Dahejia, luckily we managed to find a small public bus to take us back.

The Bao'an (also Bonan) people are an ethnic group living in Gansu and Qinghai provinces in northwestern China. Numbering approximately 17,000 they are the 7th smallest of the 56 ethnic groups officially recognized by the People's Republic of China.

They are muslims, speak a Mongolic language and are famed for producing beautifully decorated knives of high quality.


This picture shows a circle of grain on the village square with the town mosque in the background.


Yes, that's another new location here on TE...
