Snapshot Sunday: Ethnic Minorities in China, Dong Village of Zhoaxing


I love this man’s sweet face!  We walked by him squatting on the side of the main road with a collection of small handmade bamboo pipes for sale.  As we explored the region we noticed many males sitting by the river and in the gathering areas of town smoking away on these same pipes.  Curious, we stopped to investigate and before we knew it we were surrounded by passersby's, all wanting to see what the foreigners were up to!  We had a quick chat with the man (as best as our hand motions and mispronunciations from our language book would allow) and finally settled on a price by drawing numbers in the dirt!  The souvenirs were less than a buck but the memory and interaction with the locals was worth far more!
