Shuhe Village, Yunnan Province, China
The city streets are remarkably free of traffic, and there is even an open town square--no matter what the cultural background is, a central meeting place for markets and social functions is a common element; we were there on National Children's Day, and there was a tug of war going on in the square for all to see. When one team won, a member would change sides and they would begin againl, trying to have an evenly gifted team on each side. It was like stepping back in time in a way that was particularly remarkable for modern China.
