Guizhou Province, Festivals, April 2007 - marysuefarley

Driving towards Shidong town, we passed through the village of Laotun. We saw a crowd of people gathering and fortuitously stopped -- fortuitous for two reasons. First, there was an absolutely spectacular little festival/celebration going on and the costumes were amazing. Second, part of the festivities included horse racing and just seconds after we stopped, a horse came galloping madly around the corner, almost hitting the car!
