Eating My Way Through China: In the Countryside

Here is a rural village we stopped by on our way to Hwang Shan. It full of tiny streets and bridges over small streams flowing into the lake you see here, bordered by enormous waterlilies.

Although it's a tourist trap now, folks still go on making their living, cooking, crafting wares, and washing their laundry in the surrounding pools.

Here are some chilies, drying in the baking sun.

Flatbreads and cakes for sale in a quiet corner.

This villager is drying tea - when I took this picture he joked,
"Don't - I'm too old and ugly!"
