A River Runs Through It – Zhenyuan by Mary Frankel

Day 12 of our journey brought us to Zhenyuan, an ancient town inhabited by the Miao people for 2,000 years.  This tranquil river town is called the ‘Oriental Venice’ and for good reason.  I was quickly charmed as I strolled along the Wuyang River, enjoying the shimmering reflections on the emerald green water. 

Painting this moment in time brings back peaceful and relaxing memories, and if you were comparing Zhenyuan to Venice – she would be the quiet, shy and peaceful older sister.
