Wu had a leaking roof he use to fix and he had bamboo scaffolding up as supports. I use to walk past his house everyday, and when seeing me he use to scamble down and we would converse in nods, prompts and grunts...he couldnt speak a word of english..I could speak just two words of Chinese....

Capturing the smoke from his nosrels is superbly timed and makes the image IMO.

Congrats on the EC Si
