During the five years and change that I lived and taught English in South Korea I don’t remember seeing as many lines hung with drying fish as I’m seeing here in Changhsa, China.
Maybe it’s because I didn’t have my Canon 400D during the time I lived on Ganghwa Island, or because later on I was stressed out and tired by my work schedule and just didn’t notice . . . but even with the Pentax point and shoot camera I had I was still taking a lot of pictures–I just don’t have any of drying fish on a line or hook like I’ve seen here.
Anyways, seeing the more traditional ways of preserving foods is fantastic–and makes me think about how much we’ve lost with the modernization of food.
