In Kaifeng

. . . cosplay is very popular.

. . . real women wear six-inch heels when they cross steep, uneven wooden bridges. In the rain.

(This is the bridge)

. . . there's lots to eat

(warm polenta with dried fruit slices)

(soup-filled dumplings)

. . . your soul can be weighed (and found wanting)

. . . statues play chess

. . . you can get a lot of inspiration for the next water feature you install in your yard

. . . there seem to be a lot of Hakka running around

(Hakka were a nomadic group in China--stereotyped as having ugly women, because they didn't practice foot-binding).
