Road Trip: Outer Shantou

Anne Chow, a friend of my mom, is in Shantou both to visit Julia Hsiao (a vice-chancellor here at Shantou University) and to see the region where her family is from. I went with her as she went to the “Chow” village where pretty much everybody is a “Chow.” Being the first relative in her generation to make it back to the hometown, Anne was greeted warmly by relatives. Her grandfather built a primary and secondary school in the area which we also visited. Check out the photos from today’s adventures.
