Market days are an opportunity for peddlers to rally this village close to Luoyang in Henan province. They sell cheap clothes, plastic stuff, household items…Modernity has not yet come to this remote village, far away from China’s wealthy East coast. The occasional new car is often the only indicator that we are, nevertheless, in the 21st century.
The workers of the large construction sites throughout China come from villages like this one. They left behind their family seeking out the East coast opportunities to gain a living.
