Residents in the village is only 19 people, all bordered by a lake door, we walked into a small pavilion in front of Ah Ma's home in the car. On the road A car hears and the master said Mary a good and simple people to see faces Mary found A car is not very proficient in Mandarin and can only speak simple words, his face almost always with a humble smile.
Mosuo people's houses are made with wooden structures, each household wood enclosed small courtyard. Owner living in the downstairs, upstairs a few rooms are designed for tourists to stay out, two of which also were the words "greenhouse" and "Assia room." 3 rooms face the lake there is a Ah L, and the other by a Hong Kong under the Z package, so I named Wu was admitted to the remaining one to three humans, while his wife was admitted to the Lee Brother "Greenhouse." Our room facilities is very simple, only three wooden bed, there is a window, open the window you can see the beautiful lakes and mountains. Unfortunately, very, as we come to the village the day before the blackout happens, let's experience a more authentic life of the traditional Moso.
A L encountered the previous day to go home visits, rain, leading to fever, but still drum up the energy to see us to chat for a while. She just graduated this summer, travel here in July, is here touched by children and school principals decided to stay for half a year to do volunteer teachers. Hear that she is a very emotional girl, full of enthusiasm for life, she said himself this time a wayward behavior, there is no idea of when the pacesetter. I understand that like her idea, but still she was able to uphold its own commitments and moved. Really could not bear to let her illness with a chat with us, so will bring the cold medicine to stay, we went downstairs to the grandmother's house a pedestrian ready to eat.
Mosuo people each have a grandmother house next to the kitchen, her grandmother housing threshold high, the door beams also very low, little carelessness will touch his head. Usually grandmothers do not put out the fire inside the house all year round, I heard that it is worried that the elderly stand the cold, of course, is to eat at Grandma's house. Lit candles, we entered the house his grandmother, see not dinner, everyone Weizhaohuolu chat.

Meals, and Tashi, and we sat a small table, while the A cars Fama and others in other places to eat. Listen to chala Mosuo people that do not look a woman headed, but all the "diplomatic" behavior still played by men. Lugu Lake area there is no vegetables, and even the rice did not, a lot of things have to go out to buy.
