Last year I was on a business trip to a Miao ethnic village in Rong Shui county. The road from Rong Shui to the village was a windy dirt road through the mountains. One of the bridges was being rebuilt so there was a temporary dirt road built over several concrete pipes that served as a temporary bridge.

The dump truck was carrying rocks and had already overturned before we arrived. A crane was there trying to lift it up, but they failed and gave up. We finally got by, but on the way back the road was blocked again, for the second and successful attempt.

We did go swimming after I finished filming. Two of my colleagues and I stripped down to our underwear and joined the kids in the river. The current was strong and it was deep near the rock you can see the kids sitting on. I would never do this in America, but it's no big deal here, some guys were bathing in the river in their underwear while we waited!!!
