Back to the Salween/Nujiang ...

The last trip with my Rolleiflex over Christmas was to the Catholic communities of the Nujiang in Yunnan. Joseph Rock visited these places in the 1920s, and described one mission station (Bahang/Baihanluo) as "the loveliest that I know". I wil post more pictures soon, when they are developed.
For now, here are the then and now pictures of Baihanluo/Bahang:
In 1925:
