At the Lisu Wedding

I went with a few friends to a Lisu Wedding last week. We got there a bit late so we could not see the whole ceremony but it is mostly talking and i do not understand a word anyhow. The grand finale is than sharing a drink and married you are!
The girl is 17 and the guy 18 – apparently the parents did catch them when they where making love together – 3 days later the wedding took place – shotgun style. They killed a pig and have a big pot of vegetables with it. Lots of beer, mixers and rice whiskey to go with it. I did not want to go into the little room where they had the ceremony as the other guy was doing a video. So there is only one picture.

The bride wears black and sits on the left side of the groom which went for brown today. To bad the young ppl do not wear the traditional cloths any more – not even for their own wedding…

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
