China - Economy - A Migrant Story

Ding Zhifa and Cai Xingju are getting ready to spend their first night together. They were recently 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. They already know they won't stay in the same room in Beijing, as men and women sleep in separate dormitories. | Location: Wei Ding, Anhui, China.
