I mentioned Kunlun mountain on my second entry called “Farming Stone “. Because of the topic of that entry, people may think rocks must be the only thing that mountain have. Actually mountains do not only mean Rocks. They also have body, skin, blood, life even emotion and personality just like human. The Rocky mountain and Tianshan mountain are two blood brothers and sit on two sides of the world.

I have showed some pictures about big cities in both America and China on one of my entry called “Reinforced Concrete or Humanism” . They all look the same whatever where they are. Can you imagine thousands years later what they will become? Let’s take a trip into the past. No matter Mesa Verde (700 years) in America or Jiaohe & Gaochang Ruins(2000 years), Milan & Qiuzi ancient cities (2000 years) in China, they were all prosperous and important thousand years ago. They were just like New York City, Beijing and Shanghai today. Time can change big cities into ruins, but people are too small to control anything. My friends, I hope  you can find the images of big cities from thousand years ago via my pictures. Let’s start our trip into the past. The first stop is Mesa verde.

Mesa Verde, CO. America(A.D. 550 to 1300) : Ancestral Puebloans made Mesa Verde their home from about A.D. 550 to 1300. For more than 700 years they and their descendants lived and flourished here.

Uyghur is a Chinese minority group from north west of China. A cowboy is an animal herder who tends cattle on ranches in north west of America, traditionally on horseback, and often performs a multitude of other ranch-related tasks.Because of the special geographical positions and complex historical backgrounds, both of them have their own culture and art. Music is an important component of their cultures.

Muqam: The melody type used in Uyghur music.

The muqam system developed among the Uyghurs  in northwest China over  1500 years. Uyghur has local muqam systems named after the oasis towns of Xinjiang, such as

After the travel of many big cities, I figure out the small village is my home finally. I told my wife when we get old, I hope we can live as two rednecks, live in a small town(the smaller the better), grow vegetables and raise two dogs. God blessed me to find my lovely wife, even before I knew God. My wife was very excited when we were talking about our future redneck life. Hopefully, the dream can be true. As two potential rednecks, we have two potential places to live. One is Hemu village that lies in the northwest of China, the other one is Ouray, CO. in the west of America.

Hemu,Xinjiang, Northwest of China: Population: 1999, area: 772 square miles, average degree in winter:-16.6F. Hemu village is at the foot of Tianshan mountain. In winter, it looks like the Chinese traditional painting.
