« Transect at Wudong | Main | Tau Jiung »


Another day of household surveys, this time in the Miao village of Wudong.  The first interview of the day was with this wonderful fellow and his dog.  Non-stop smiles and much good information about the local use of Chinese fir. The only bad thing was that I left my baseball cap in his house.  

The shot below is mostly to give you some idea about the architecture of the houses in this village.  It was the cute kids giving me the peace sign, however, that actually motivated me to dig the camera out of my pack. [NOTES: All of the boards and poles used in local house construction are Chinese fir, or "shamu" (Cunninghamia lanceolata (Lamb.) Hook).  I'll stop by and pick my cap up tomorrow; we're running inventory transects in the forests behind the village].
