Join us on a little walk to “Happy Forest” village (快活林村)! The photos go in order from the Great Wall, down the mountain through the terraced corn fields, across the river into the village. We walked down the main village road, talked with the surprising number of old people who were sitting around. A couple of us found an elementary school that just happened to be in the middle of recess, and caused some minor chaos.
The big Chinese characters painted all over the buildings are political slogans, most of them about the One Child Policy and promoting the raising of daughters.
This gallery is mostly people shots. The faces you’ll see are priceless. (62 photos.)
