Pearly sprout

I would like to share an interesting thing about nature in this post. When I was in Li Jiang, Yunnan, I marvelled at a water source called Pearl River Source (Zhen Chu Quan). It was so named because, when we clap our hands above the water surface, pearly droplets of water will sprout from the crystal-clear river bed. I have never seen a river such as this before. According to the Naxian tourist guide, the water is alkaline and the local people who drink this water will stay slim. What a way to be slim economically! This must be good news for ladies and lasses.

This river source is named 'Zhen Chu Quan'
