We live very near a stream, which also runs through an abandoned community project where we walk our dogs almost every day.

Wagi had invited me to help with a local crops and garden plan in her community in Qingquan. After spending the night at the Catholic hostel, I met up with Wagi to survey a potential site at the local elementary school. Eventually, we learned that their was opposition and Wagi decided to cancel the project their at the site. I had some interesting conversation with her and her husband on indigenous land rights and cultural preservation.
