Daily life of ferryman at Miaoshang crossing in Huangjinxia Town, China’s Shaanxi


Han Wenxin (R) and Han Baocheng check the lifesaving suits on the boat at the Miaoshang crossing in Huangjinxia Town, Hanzhong City of northwest China’s Shaanxi Province, July 16, 2020. Han Wenxin, 71, a ferryman for 60 years at the Miaoshang crossing, a 100-year-old crossing in Huangjinxia Town, stuck to his position every day despite of the weather and whenever the villagers needed him, and charged no money from his impoverished clients. In 2018, Han Wenxin broke his feet and called his son Han Baocheng back to continue his business. Although earning few money, Han and his son feel hard to give up the work, as they have deep feelings for the local villagers. (Xinhua/Tao Ming)
