In Miao country there are lots of camillia farms, and the women farmers are dressed in these gorgeous sequined, beaded dresses. They wear their long black hair in rolls, and a mother and daughter share hair, they use long cuttings of hair to make the roll. I was hosted in that region as it is very remote and of course there are no hotels. The families that hosted me celebrated with rice wine at night, and that celebration means shot after shot after shot of the straight alcohol. I was stone drunk every day with hella hangovers every morning. Our shower, in the tiny apartment where we stayed, was outdoors, and faced the river. It was very cold. But this was great because I was always recovering from drinking. It would have been inconceivable for me to turn down the hospitality that was being offered.
