Photographer's Note

Dog lovers (not in the culinary sense) might find this photo to be in bad taste, and a little hard to swallow, but it is nevertheless reflective of major cultural differences between societies. Dog is eaten is some regions of China, though not everywhere, and Yunnan has its fair share of dog dishes. This unfortunate canine ended up roasted on a spit, with what appears to be a kind of blow torch, visible on the right. Whatever our moral standpoint on such issues, this happens.

The picture was taken in Xinjie, the old county seat of Yuan Yang, which is without doubt one of the ugliest and most rickety towns I have ever been to. Even by Chinese standards it's an awful and dirty mess; in stark contrast to the beauty of the area's terraced fields.
