Beneath this bowl of stars...

toddler activites, food, photos, and other orbital occurrences

Amber's Yeh Yeh grew up in Shangahi in a one room 300sq ft apartment with 3 sisters, 1 brother and his parents. They had beds that were attached to the wall like on a train. At night, while they slept in their wall beds, they rented out the main floor space in the room to textile workers. The workers smoked so much that Yeh Yeh has chronic bronchitis. We traveled to his old street. The buildings across from where he lived are still standing but his building is long gone, replaced with the construction of a high rise hotel/office.
