Residents enjoy life of peace in Changning

Pictures taken by a Yunnan Daily correspondent on Jan. 6 show residents enjoy a peaceful life in Changning County, southwest Yunnans Baoshan City. 

In history, the Changning area was favored by Xu Xiake, a Chinese travel writer and geographer of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) known best for his famous geographical treatise. Poet Yang Shen, a Sichuan native in the Chinese Ming dynasty, poured his passion in Changning on harvest days, mistaking this promised land as his hometown when drunk.
