An 18 hour train (approx 80 mph), 2 hour bus ride (approx 50mph), and a 45 minute electric scooter rental (approx 23 mph) brought me to this distant, oily-aired Southern village in China. Only on a an adventure will you find genuine moments like the ones that was experienced on this day. We traveled all day with the clear plan of aimlessness. For on this day direction did not matter. Every direction brought us directly to our goal: discovery.
Each corner we turned pushed our hair back so that we were surprised over and over again... There was a degree of anxiety and stress not far from that of competing in an important sports match, but it had the tranquility of taking a dip on a warm stale night and the reward of earning a weekend. We were way off our comfort grid, but somehow this was welcomed.
During my day I came across this scene. I'll let your imagination figure out how, why, and who got this table to the middle of an extremely poor and rural part of China. Let me know what you think.
