Rural China visit

During this China trip, I went to the countryside to visit some cousins and my grandparents' grave. I like these pictures I took of my relatives:

I like the colors in this one of my mom and her umbrella:

What's a visit to the country without animals?

Chicken!

Baa sheep

There were a bunch of these guinea pig cages in one tourist area, hanging from trees:

They were so colorful!

We hiked up a bamboo forest to get to the grave site.

I got a billion mosquito bites just from the hike in the woods! (I wish I took more (and better) pictures in that forest.)

I think this may be my first time seeing a real "live" scarecrow:

We brought food to the grave and paid our respects. Afterward, we wired some money to my late grandparents:

I was fascinated by the solar water heater on the roof:

These things are apparently quite popular now. I think the tubes trap heat by greenhouse effect or something.

And finally, we wave goodbye:

the bamboo forest looks so awesome. you are such a 孝順的孩子.

bamboo forest graveyard, so fancy! I think my grandparents on my dad's side are buried under some rocks, although I think they're apartment buildings now.

i like the top photo best because of the contrasts between the people :)
