A visit to the hills

To celebrate the Chinese New Year, the majority of children returned to their village for a festive weekend. I had the chance to join them in their traditional dances around a totem and also in a ceremony in which all the villagers wore traditional dress early in the morning, gave out sweets to each home and washed the hands of the owner of the premises. In spite of the poverty existing in the children’s villages this was a beautiful and magical experience.
