Day 110: Kaixiangong

Our second day with the group of about 80 Fudan SSDPP students and faculty began at 7 a.m. with a very Chinese breakfast, complete with warm powdered milk, mantou, zhou (rice porridge), boiled eggs, egg noodles with a simple sauce, and more.

Then we made our way by private bus to Kaixiangong, or Jiangcun, a village about two hours away from Huaxi that’s slightly more well-off than a typical Chinese village.
