Pingyao :: Shanxi, China: Pingyao, Shanxi, People's Republic of China
: The Author; Eat-Drink.
Tang mian: noodle soup. Patrons and staff of this little roadside eatery tried to fob a spoon off on me. Obviously, I didn't know what I was doing with chopsticks.

The older fella behind me had been very friendly at the start, and very helpful--demanding all kinds of things from the restaurant owners. We all had a lot of fun with it. But when the noodles finally came, I handed over the phrase guide to him only to discover his eyesight was too poor to read the small characters. A younger guy, the subject of the next picture and the photographer of this one, took the guide and the dynamics changed immediately. This photograph captures an expression of sadness and loss I hadn't noticed at the time.

Great idea re:giving the camera to them. I'm sure it broke the ice. My first trip coming up along the Silk Road but I'm trying to squeeze on Pingyao...looks like a phenomenal location. Like the film. "Raise the Red Lantern", could jhave been filmed there.
