I went to the Li River not only to see the beautiful, mega-tourist attraction of south-central China. I thought that apart from the landscape, I would observe something more. And I wasn't disappointed. For one day I became a Chinese tourist standing in the second row, holding the camera up and ready.
The Li River is phenomenal. Amazing rock forms stretching up to the horizon, unique in the world scale. Even on a cloudy, rainy day it is beautiful here. One need to just be here, watch, listen and feel. The tourist trip on the Li River is also phenomenal. A crowd with telephones overflows the deck of the ship under the dictation of the guide. Registers everything automatically, without contemplation, properly on command. Picture after picture, hundreds, thousands of pictures, shot from the right, shot from the left, top, bottom, selfie from stick, photo of photo... Click! Our group is taking pictures of the cash bill with the mountain image. The same mountains are right in front of them in real life at the same time.
I began to wonder what all this is for? After all, you need just to look up from the phone for a moment and see the whole world in the best possible way. With your own eyes.
