Day 8 : Flying by
The days are flying by. We had this morning off, which was needed by all. A walk round to a village revealed a sculpture factory. Each day brings more understanding of a culture of which I knew very little, and as we discuss what we are all experiencing, it is almost surreal how different the (Western) image of China is to the reality. Since I arrived, it feels like I have had to swap the two halves of my brain, something I have not experienced before, even in Hong Kong. The afternoon is spent in a somewhat token stone shifting activity. It's hot, and we sing some workers co-operative songs for fun - no really.
