Walking into people's lives






Baixu's family were actors in the theatre business and we were taken to the actors quarters which was very interesting. The living quarters were downstairs surrounding the communal kitchens. The rehearsal area was upstairs which lead to the stage where they once performed. The bamboo sticks you see are the clothes lines to hang clothes for drying. The beautiful hand carved windows are like the ones I bought at the sherd market. The one aerial view you can see the old man in his bedroom apartment and you can see the disrepair of the communal kitchen living room. What a lovely picture of Biaxu and her old family friend one of the actors of old. We were offered tea and mandarin oranges from almost every home we visited. I felt uncomfortable walking into people's lives like that!

Tony thanks for all the great pictures you have been posting from China.

On your earlier pages I could click on a picture. Now when I click on a picture a window opens on my computer prompting me to save the small version I am already looking at. Are you posting the pics differently or posting only smaller size images?
