On a hilltop outside the city of Changsha, China, in a pastoral landscape, there was a kung fu school. Alixin, my wife, and I love to hike there.
The Kung Fu master is usually not photographed; Changsha has no foreigners. He was photographed with Alixin, my wife, then my girlfriend, whom he likes very much. The master is a monk (who is not dressed as a monk); he does not get married and leads a modest lifestyle.
The master prepared a mixture of ground stem peels that strengthened the liver. I was given a small handful to taste (the medicine could not be purchased). The medicine was intended for self-use by the students and teaching staff at the Kung Fu school.
