CHAPTER 20- ANCHANG- WATER TOWN - DRYING CLOTHES AND FOOD

Anchang is a water town about an hour outside Shaoxing. It has present old wooden buildings along one long canal basically and is being modernized into a new tourist area. It still has enough old areas to make a worthwhile visit.

It is also ‘sausage making time’ in Anchang (and other places too, but it seems to be more noticeable here.) Sausages seem to be hanging and drying everywhere. Also the occasional pieces of meat, chicken, and duck are inter-mixed. It must be salted as it is very cold and damp during this time. It hangs everywhere from cloths lines, buildings, across footpaths and does not seem to be attacked by insects, flies or birds. However, dogs and even cats are tethered during this time.
Clothes are also drying everywhere due to the lack of space.
