[Portrait] Father and Son

I’m going to keep my post today simple. Here’s a photo of a family I encountered in Inner Mongolia last weekend. They seemed to be surprised that my English was so good and my Chinese was not so good. But it’s always amazing how personal you can get with people in China. It’s something Japan and the US lack more and more of these days especially in the cities where everyone wants more privacy.

    • Thanks for the message!I was traveling for just one weekend, which wasnt enough time at all. But again, I was in Inner Mongolia so it wasn’t the country of Mongolia.
