The Longtan Village in Ninghai

The Longtan Village in Ninghai is surrounded by mountains and has picturesque scenery. Alone, in the stone house with wind blowing through four sides into the house lives an old lady with last name Chu. A plastic bucket is placed to hold the water dropped from the ceiling. Consecutive rainy days during the Qingming Festival have made bamboo shoots hard to dry. Today, she heats her cookware and brings the bamboo shoots inside, putting them at the bottom of her cookware. She hopes that in this way, the bamboo shoots could dry faster. She could have eaten them for a year.
