More than half of China's population still lives in the countryside. Hop on a bus and head in any direction out of the city to have your own rural experience.

Is there any resource here specifically for the dialect of Shandong? My mother comes from Weifang in Shandong province.

Unfortunately public sanitation in the countryside isn't up to standards. One of the drawbacks to China's consumption is the accumulation of non recyclable goods that gets thrown to the wayside.

On the flip side, anything that can be recycled such as plastics, cardboard, scrap metal or glass is highly sought. These materials can fetch a small deposit back. In the city, large networks of recyclers roam the streets searching for anything that can be scrapped in order to make a meager living.

Wow. Was that just a big pile of trash towards the end of the video? No garbagemen in this village?
