[Favorite cities] #11 enchanting Lima – an Overlooked Capital

中文

Many people, including my Peruvian friends, had told me there’s not so much to do in this city before I decided to put Lima in my itinerary. Surprisingly I loved this city very much, regardless how busy and messy it can be. I guess Lima is not an easy city to love, that’s why many travelers only use it as a stopover.

Lima is a diverse city, you can see it if you travel from one area to another. I stayed in Miraflores, one of the safest area in Lima. I traveled to different neighborhoods in the city.

Today I’d like to show my dear Steemit friends how to love Lima. Continue reading [Favorite cities] #11 enchanting Lima – an Overlooked Capital

哥伦比亚的原住民传统市集

English

Silvia是一个位于哥伦比亚安第斯山间的小镇。每周二,小镇周围的原住民部族Guambiano的印第安人都会聚集在Silvia,他们在这里举办热闹的市集。小镇离哥伦比亚的南部城市波帕扬不远,从波帕扬可以一天来回。

市集上面注意的参与者就是住在附近的印第安原住民,不论老少都会来这里玩。我很喜欢他们的传统服饰,宝蓝色的斗篷,无论男女都穿着登山鞋和长裙,带着可爱的羊毛毡帽子。集市里面卖的基本都是农产品,水果蔬菜和肉类。也有一部分卖衣服,和小吃,午餐可以在这里解决。

大多都是当地人来这里买点日常必需品,我只发现了很少的卖手工串珠的摊位。批量生产的纪念品产业还没有发展开来。即使是这样,市集还是吸引了一些游客(包括我)。我还发现一个有意思的女士,买了一整套传统服饰,现场穿了开始摆拍,看得周围的印第安人都乐了。她倒是也挺神,我都没找到有卖这类衣服的,居然被她都找到了。 Continue reading 哥伦比亚的原住民传统市集

Indigenous Market In Silvia, Colombia

中文

Silvia is an Andean town in Cauca Department, Colombia. Every Tuesday, an Indigenous market of the Guambiana community takes place in Silvia. The town is not far from Popayán, I went there for a day trip when I visited Popayán.

It was mainly the indigenous Guambiano Indians living in the nearby areas who host and come to the market. I love their traditional clothes. They all wore hiking shoes, blue capes, long swing skirts and a lovely wool felt hat. In the market, mainly the agricultural product and meat was sold, plus some clothes and shoes. There are also a small area of food stalls where you can get lunch and snacks.

The market was not really touristy. I did found some handmade beaded bracelets to buy, but not such a tourism industry there selling mass souvenirs. Still, it attracts some tourists, including myself, I even saw a lady who bought the whole set of Guambiano traditional clothes and was super happy posing with them on.

记我在欧洲最顶尖的音乐节Rock Werchter的一天

English

昨天我去了在比利时乃至欧洲最顶尖的音乐节叫作Rock Werchter。每年夏天六月底七月初的四天,平常风吹草低见牛羊的Werchter小镇就摇身一变,成为了所有音乐爱好者的大型派对,从全世界赶来的人们,在这里狂欢庆祝夏天。幸运的是,音乐节地点离我住的鲁汶市挺近,从鲁汶有去音乐节全天无间断的接驳巴士。也因为这样,每年这时鲁汶的酒店或者青年旅社也是很早就被订光,就跟音乐节的票一样。就着地理优势,Rock Werchter也是我几乎每年夏天的必备活动。如果你有机会夏天来看音乐节,告诉我吧! Continue reading 记我在欧洲最顶尖的音乐节Rock Werchter的一天
