China – into the countryside – photos – paddy fields, water fights and festivals.

We headed off into the countryside. It was a festival day. A lot of the young folk were cycling out into the countryside wearing flowery hats or flowers in their hair. They were hiring bamboo rafts and ing down the river having water fights with this bamboo squirters (like bamboo bicycle pumps). They were laughing, squealing and having a great time.

We saw a number of older people with bent backs – I surmised that it was a condition brought on by long hours spend bending over planting rice in paddy fields.

I'd like to hear from you...
