When my book ‘Finding Myself in China: A Politically Incorrect Story’ was finally published, I began work on collating all the travel stories and interesting events from particular places (irrespective of when I was there) into a series of books that are part travelogue but which broaden the field of my life’s experiences in China – something that I could not do in the first book because it would have been too big. In Book One of those travel adventures, I talk about various places that I visited in and around Honghu City in Hubei Province which is where I worked through 2003 and 2004.
When I first began publishing articles about my life in China, I did so through my column in Magic City Morning Star News. I did a series of 26 articles about life in Honghu which have since been transferred to the old KingsCalendar website.
One of those stories is about the Village of Hengji, a place in which I sometimes stayed at Spring Festival or for a little while in Summer. The photographs today are mainly of that little 300 person village, but I have also included some shots of two other places.
There are in fact two articles at Kingscalendar in relation to Hengji, the second just contains Extra photographs Hengji Village
Other Photo Files in this Book One Series include:
Book One : Photographs from Tanggu Tianjin China
Book One Photographs: Honghu City Hubei Province Rivers and Canals
Book One Photographs from Chibi
Book One Photographs: Yichang and Three Gorges Dam in China
Hengji Village – Hong Hu City – Not far from Wugou and Fengkou
Hubei Province Central China
There is nothing more annoying for me than listening to politically correct big mouthed ideologues who look at white skin and say ‘You don’t know what it is like for someone to live in a foreign country!‘ BS I don’t!
The kids used to turn up repeatedly throughout the day just to look at the foreigner, touch him, feel the hair on his (the monkey’s) arms and generally just gawk. China has changed a lot over the years but there have been times when a foreigner in a small town or village would attract huge crowds. Sometimes people would be known to suddenly come upon you, look up at your face and just plain scream! I’m not joking!
And let’s not forget the time some people said ‘Last time foreigners were here they (Japanese) killed many people. Maybe we should kill this foreigner!’ (TRUE story)
Looking down on the peasants
I woke up one morning and went outside looking for a tree and came upon the most beautiful sunrise. I ran back in and got my camera and took several shots, the best of which I published in my column at Magic City. Unfortunately in my haste, I saved the edited (smaller) version of the best picture and lost the opportunity to frame that glorious big photograph.
Getting around the village
These are just some shots from Daishi. I went in Spring Festival 2006 to visit my former teaching coordinator Lawrence. The bottom right frame shows a boy with a hand over his face. That is $1 – a name my brother and I called him because that is what his Chinese name sounded like and we could never say his name correctly.
One day I was out with Lawrence and the driver (don’t know where we had been) and he informed me that he needed to stop off to see someone on the way back to the school. This little village of Jung Feng seemed smaller than Henji (which way back then had 300 people in it).
I hope you have enjoyed these pictures and the accompanying comments.
While Book One of Stories of China has not yet been published, ‘Finding Myself in China : A Politically Incorrect Story’ has been published. It can only be purchased in PDF format. If you would like to know why this is so, You can read about the reasons in Holding Authors to Ransom – and – How much in royalties do book authors get paid?
Since Google limits visibility of all sites not actively involved with Google advertising, my book is not likely to become widely known without the help of readers. If you have already purchased a copy of my book you could assist me by writing about it on facebook or just sharing this page with your friends.
