Today we met with the people from the women’s dance group who were also the leaders of the workers union and were also the government birth control officers for the village. Obviously I showed then the pictures of my four children and despite the cooing that ensued over the 20 month old twins, they were keen to emphasise that should I procreate so actively over here I would be fined 100,000 Yuan and loose my job.

We’re keen to involve them in our proposed mini festival for the village on the 17th, so have agreed to meet up with them on Thursday night to show us their dance moves, on the condition that Harold shows them some hip hop moves and we teach them a morsel or two of Scottish country dancing.
