Reflections on a Wandering Life.....

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

This morning we boarded the bus for Mianzhu. We arrived about noon, and Xiao Hong took us to her brother's farm, where we are going to be staying while we are here. The farmers served us a big lunch and we retired for an afternoon nap.

We are really lucky to be able to stay on a farm, because the only other option would be to squeeze into a tent in the tent city in Hanwang. It really is a tough, inconvenient life for many of those folks. Here on the farm, although there has been some damage, life goes on as usual. I think that's partly because most of the structures on this particular farm were either built or remodeled in the last few years. They are not "rich" buildings. But they are sturdy and well constructed.
