We were outside near less-populated areas last weekend and I took a hike in the woods with the kids.
We stumbled upon what was clearly a gravesite.
This is not so common in China, since due to space reasons and probably cultural reasons most bodies are cremated and the ashes placed in a mausoleum.
But I hear that in the countryside some places still have graves.
The yellow papers are burned, and the food and drink are offerings, I think.
Some of the practices in this area seem to be a mix of Buddhism, animism and superstition/rote tradition, and it’s not clear to me what it all means.
Different people have different explanations for why things are done the way they’re done.
I can’t wait to ask someone about the can of Red Bull.
