Building a Chinese house.

IMG_0442A simple foundation is laid. Like a zig-zag of concrete, or a honeycomb layout for the building to sit on(not the deep footers or foundations that we have in America). Once that’s done it’s a pole by pole affair to support the forms for the concrete. And it’s all concrete. No wood is used in the simple countryside dwelling.

Back from the Dead

Well, not quite. Living in out-of-the-way places(small cities within China) doesn’t lend itself to internet connectivity. I’ve had the Great Firewall to thank for not having access to my WordPress blog, or other social media. But thanks to a really good VPN, PandaPow, I am now back in the land of the living. Speaking of The Dead. I am a fan of The Walking Dead. Great show, great acting.
