From school kids to senior citizens

One of the most enjoyable days of my 1999 China trip was spent visiting a small rural town in the south of the country.   Western visitors to this area were a rarity at the time and hence we were met with a great deal of curiosity.  It happened that our arrival coincided with lunch time at the local primary school and so the kids were out and excited to see visitors.

The curiosity of the kids was matched by their elders who were only too pleased to pause for a photo.
