Ladies in the Trees Photo

I have no idea what these ladies are picking from there perch up in the trees but it caught me a bit by surprise. This picture was taken in Ping’an China and was a great place to visit to see rice terraces.


  1. I think it's tamarind. The tree looks similar and they have red flowers before they fruit.

    I'd love to revisit China, perhaps when I have a free month or so...and the $$$$$$

    1. I don't know much about tamarind. I think I have tried it once but don't think I was to crazy about it. I guess I should give it another try.

      I really enjoyed my time in China and would like to also return but so many places in the world to see. I did not find China really expensive but the Euro was strong then so am sure that has changed.

    2. You should give tamarind another chance, although it has to be good quality to eat as a fruit. It reminds me of a few dried fruits rolled into one. Otherwise, it's used in cooking as a sourish flavour.
