Chapter Five, A Road Trip to Meizhou Island
18 February 2015
Mr. Bakshi once told me and also wrote in his blogs, it was after going to China for work that he came to understand the nonsense of Shanghai and Beijing being some mere showcases of China.
This day was New Year Eve, the day before Goat/Sheep's Year. People were going home or in most cases already staying at home. Thanks to Mr. Xu, the organiser of the gathering, he drove Mr. and Mrs. Bakshi all the way to an island called Meizhou 200km away where the ancestral temple of Mazu is located.
NOTE The following photos were all taken by Mr. and Mrs. Bakshi
