China - Economy - A Migrant Story

Last meal before the departure. To celebrate this important moment, Cai Xingju's parents have prepared a feast of 10 courses, instead of the regular 3 or 4. Ding Zhifa and Cai Xingju wed in Wei Ding, a village of 400 inhabitants located 150 kilometers from Hefei, capital of the Anhui province. The couple met only once in 2005, by way of a meiren, or a go-between. Ding Zhifa, 25, was advised of the imminence of the wedding by phone, while he was working on a construction site in Beijing. His father met with Cai Xingju, a 24-year-old woman from the neighboring village, for him. After the two families came to an agreement, the wedding was fixed for the zheng yue 28. | Location: Nanfen, Anhui, China.
