The build of a nation
I have traveled many countries, rich and poor and in between, high education and poor education and country seemed to have good education but actually not. But speaking of practical and application, China top my chart, regardless which gauge to use.
Xinduqiao, a small town located 437km west to Chengdu, 83km west of Kangding (the home of famous Chinese folk song – Kangding Love Song – its English translate), in Garzê Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, to be a good example.
On the street, it is not easy to miss the makeshift solar cooker, picture taken on the main street of Xinduqiao, and a rather common scene of the Tibetan region. Not that there is no electricity, in fact, considered the level of infrastructure available here (on all counts), it can easily rival cities much larger than its size in other country, it is just the nature of people to make any available from nature.
