Hello to you all. I think this a wonderful forum for us to share our thoughts and stories of a country and people so near and dear to us. Thank you for offering this opportunity.

I lived in China for over a year, teaching English and then working on a documentary photography project on the Moso, an ethnic minority in Yunnan province. When most Westerners think of China they see the rapidly growing metropolises of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. Yet, about 50% of the population, more than 650 million people, are farmers and 150 million live below international poverty lines.

Danny Gawlowski and I spent a few months living in the village of Walabi, a mountain village in Yunnan where the residents remind us how so many people labor; with animal, muscle and sheer will.

I invite you all to view the images at

Hi Josie!

Thank you so much for sharing your pictures, I really enjoyed your well put-together site. I hope you will be able to bring you experience of living in China to the discussions in China Cafe and elsewhere through the site. Also, I heard that you took the beautiful banner picture for our next edition - thank you! Do you think you could tell me the story behind that picture? I know they say a picture is worth a thousand words, but you always have to guess them unless the artist is there to tell you...

Thanks again!
