The Red Buffalo’s Road

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I’m sure everyone is excited that we are halfway through the work week, but we still have lots of plenty of featured blogger fun in the coming days.

Today our featured blogger is The Red Buffalo’s Road. Make sure to stop on by and read about her adventures in Asia!

Hi I’m Corlie, a South African living in Yunnan province, Southwestern China, bordering the Golden Triangle.

Here I volunteer as a therapist at a center for disabled children from rural communities, I explore the hillsides and climb the cliff faces with my husband over the weekends and I frequently tag along on his forestry research field trips throughout the region.

Living and traveling in this part of the world has given me the opportunity to discover and learn about crafts and embroidery unique to the ancient cultures of the Golden Triangle.

Feeling the need to share what we have been experiencing here, I established the Red Buffalo websites. One, a trading store and the other, a blog site about our adventures in Asia.

I invite you to come on over and see this very special corner of the world with me, and I’m sure you’ll discover something new each time you stop by!

    Hello! I am finally back to checking in every day -after the death of my father-in-law and a little pause to travel/mourn. I can’t wait to check out your blog!

      Hi Sarah, I should have started writing when we first got here, there are so many moments that knocked me off my feet! I’m trying to “back” blog but there are definitely moments that have gotten “lost” now.

      Hi Michelle, there is still something new every day, be it a woman carrying bunches of upside down chickens on a bamboo pole across her shoulders, or a dog dressed as a princes… :)

    Happy SITS Day! I visited your blog, Corlie, and liked your post Discovering an Unlikely Likeness. I too have had the bittersweet experience of having to go and leave friends behind, friends I have never been able to see again. Still, they bring something into your life that stays with you. Wish you the best with your blogging and that your experiences in China will be an enriching experience that you can carry with you for the rest of your life.

      Hello Lisa, I love what I do, and I love that I have the freedom to do it as well, we don’t need much out here and so being able to volunteer at the centre as much as I do is quite a priviledge
