Photohunt - Long

I enjoy travelling. I like to take short trips around the region. I dislike long trips and being away from home too long. hehe....




I visited the Great Wall of China twice. It is 6 700km long, stretching from East to West. It was built more than 2 000 years ago. More than 2 million men died building it, and were buried in the wall.

The Long Neck Karen tribe in Northern Thailand. The women wear brass rings on their neck.

This long-nosed boy is from the USA. Disney World movie. haha.......

  4. Long things are only long to short things and short to longer things.

  5. satkuru,
    hehe.... let's try to beat others to be first commenter.

    When I first saw the Great Wall of China, it took my breathe away. Even the second visit was awesome. It never fails to amaze me. A masterpiece.

  8. by the way, i saw your message on tnchick's site saying you planning to shift over to wp. don't worry, nothing will be lost at least that's the case for me. there's an import function from blogger to wordpress :)

    i tried it out over in wordpress.com after registering a free account to test if i liked the feeling of wordpress compared to blogger. when everything worked fine there, then i got myself a domain and ran wordpress :P never looked back ever since :)

  13. The Great Wall is such a stunning human feat. A huge pride of the Chinese!

    And those Karen tribes. The women think they're beautiful with long necks... :P so weird!

    Pinocchio? :P

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wah...long necks? My daddy long neck and long legs also up. So is my kiap kiap :P

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ah~~Great Wall of China, the legacy of our Chinese ppl. And look at the view, how breathtaking!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've always wondered. the long necks after they break open the rings, they need to use their hands to support.

    By the way, have a nice weekend :)

  20. I missed my chance to visit the Great Wall of China few years back... But I am planning to go, in the near future, when I have enough $$$. Hehe. :)

  21. Hey, ECL. Those are very good photos for the theme and always the jokester, aren't you? Have a great weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yes....my niece visited China and saw the Great Wall and indeed it is very long.

    ReplyDelete
  23. OH! The great wall is on my top list of places to visit. That is indeed a long one.

  24. Now that's long! May son and daughter in law have been on the wall. It would be amazing to see...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Beautiful photographs and an interesting post. You made me laugh with the long nose boy. Have a great weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That walk looks like it would take forever to get across, all the ups and downs. The photos of the girls with the rings around their necks is great, but seems like it would be very uncomfortable, although they are used to it and I had to laugh at the last photo of Pinochio with the long nose. Have a good weekend.

  27. Everyone in my family has visited the Great Wall of China. I saw the replica in Shenzhen. Plan to go there someday.

    When I first saw the slides of the long neck tribes, I felt like choking. It must be uncomfortable when they sleep.

    Mine is up too.

    Have a great weekend.

  37. Oh, the Great Wall of China has to be the perfect choice for the long theme!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I haven't been to Beijing. Can't afford it next year because everything will be expensive considering the fact that Beijing will be hosting the Olympics 2008. Gotta wait.....

    ReplyDelete
  39. Beautiful photos, stunning. It always dismays me to see how many different ways we can harm other people (by building a wall, by elongating necks). Your post was fascinating.

    ReplyDelete
  40. what a magnificent view! I wish I would be able to see that sight one of these days ... :)
    great shot on those girls!

    thanks for the visit! I will ask my sister the name of the plant the next time I visit her. :)

  44. Great set of "long" you've posted here. The Great Wall is definitely LONG. I wonder if wearing those brass rings is really uncomfortable?

    Nice job on The Hunt.

  49. Never know what one will learn on blogger or photo hunt.

    Those neck brace that the women lives in Thailand sure looks uncomfortable.

    I never knew how many people died building the great wall of China. But still amazing task.

    I know what one means being away from home to long. "There no place like home"

    My photo is up.
