Sancha from Google Maps

Peter Hessler has a story in the latest National Geographic, revisiting a town in which he lived in 1996. He therein provides a sense of how rural areas have evolved over the past 15-odd years.

For Country Driving, see here and here and herelinks for Sancha including photos of the Wei family. If you visit the area, the first link includes the cell phone for Wei Ziqi, though it may be outdated.

Also from National Geographic, here is a link to a photo essay on Lishui. Click on the Google Map on the right to see where Sancha is…more or less, since that particular village isn’t labeled, only the larger administrative town. The other map is for Lishui.
