Even though I enjoy my uncle’s spacious, modern house equipped with modern bathrooms and toilets etc. Strangely, this "Old Town" area of Chencun is what I miss when I visit her home town.

My mother’s home town Chencun has changed tremendously since my first visit in the late 1970s. It used to be quite poor, backward, rural, agricultural and simple. People rode bicycles on dirt roads and worked on farms. Electricity supply was unreliable and the occasional brownouts were not a surprise. They mostly cooked their own meals at home and families gathered after dinner around the radio to listen to broadcast drama. While part of Chencun has been completely transformed, we found the part that still looks like how it was 30 years ago.
