ECO Friendly Corn Drying
It's not that this young man isn't concerned about being environmentally responsible, I'm sure he is....I hope....but this is a way of life for many of the farmers who grow corn along the banks of the Yangtze River and throughout the countryside of China. Thousand year-old cities and villages are now being built on higher grounds and life continues as it has for centuries. There are new buildings, new homes, new streets, but as you can see, some things just haven't changed.......my voyage along the world's third largest river revealed many contrasts as the old China slowly disappears leaving the ancient battle grounds, industrial ports and etheral beauty a thing of the past..........buried under the waters of the Three Gorges Dam project.
