China - Interiors of Chinese Peasant Homes

Wang Guoming is a former soldier. His mother owns a 4MU tea plantation. He is one of the richest men in the village. Like the majority of newly rich peasants in the tea industry, he has not worked the land for a long time. He has moved into the real estate business while keeping his status as a farmer. He is never on the farm except at Chinese New Year. He told us it is impossible to make a living in the tea industry. The only way of making a money is to accumulate land to increase production. Exportation seems to be controlled by those in power, which is a somewhat taboo subject. A well-managed farm can bring in 200,000 yuan. However, this is still an inadequate sum with which to build a new house.
