Day 20: Kunming Demolition

We spent time examining old villages currently under a large scale gentrification scheme in the outskirts of Kunming. Villagers are moved from their homes to either massive housing estates even further out of the city, or sent to other provinces where a larger workforce is required.

Locals continue to make a living from the place for the time being, however, by collecting bricks by digging through the rubble which are still useable, loading them on to trucks to be sold elsewhere to construction companies.
