... and cleaning their fish and plucking chickens in the same stretch of water ( side by side); and the local crops on the outskirts. Finally on my last day it was by bus to another village - Qinghua to see the Rainbow bridge (800 years old and original!!!) A bit same, same so think I am done with old villages. Very hot and humid.

flight left on time at 10:30 and we arrived in Wuhan at 12:30 to more rainy
skies. The plane was quite new and we even got a hot lunch! We picked ...
