Hi there, before anything, seeing this page means you are visiting my blog, and I thank you for that. My name is Xiangyu Ruan, and I am from an ethnic-autonomous prefecture of the Southwestern province of Sichuan, China. Growing up in the ethnically diversed China Southwest, I have always had special interests in the cultures and arts of the minority groups of China.

As one of the richest cultural heritage in not only Asia but the world, the Tibetan culture has long been attracting me, and as a fan and a student, I learn and present some of the interesting aspects and elements of the Tibetan culture here in this blog, in hope to walk deeper into this old and lasting legacy of our world.
