Pingyao in Shanxi Province, China is served by a small railway station of two platforms. Outside, the railway station you are greeted with what appears a scene typical of any small city in China: lots of traffic from cars, mopeds and bikes, barely enough pavements to walk safely, and–of course–large crowds of people busily eating street food. However, if you just walk on a little further, within fifteen minutes you see another side of Pingyao: the ancient city wall-a centrally important place in China’s financial history.
On going through the gate, you will see an ancient city that has maintained its layout from the Ming and Qing Dynasties. And it is all testament to how it was once the banking center of late imperial China, where the first Chinese banks originated.

what to wear when…in a puebloan fairy tale.a great many of [pueblo fairy tales or telapnaawe] do reflect the ties of isleta to acoma and especially to laguna pueblo…the laguna-isleta kinship is of considerable historical significance to the ritual and literary traditions of the isletans [but one should] differentiate keres stories (acoma and laguna) from tiwa stories (isleta, sandia, picuris, taos, and other older tiguex, tanoan pueblos)…[pueblo fairy tales] tell what happens when the strictures of the “trues,” the powerful isletan deities, are violated [and] explain the “whys” of many things…isleta as a place in these tales extends much beyond the pueblo as center, into the manzano and sandia mountains to the east, and beyond them to llano estacado, the staked plains known to the pueblos much before these vast grasslands were marked by the spanish. the dark, volcanic loomings to tomé hill, the plateau known as the black mesa that marks the southern boundary of the present isleta reservation, the salt lakes in the southern manzanos, the villages of mesita and las padillas - all of these special and community-defining landmarks are given special animism throughout. personification of the moon and the sun, of stars and planets, of plants and crops (especially corn), of rocks, trees, and bushes, mesas and mountains, rivers and winds, landforms and elements, make for magical and compelling adventures; momentous odysseys of birth and death, of creation and destruction, trickery and gullibility, falseness and fakery deservedly undone…besides cosmic, elemental, topographical, horticultural, and regional preferences, there is much powerful fabrication in these stories. as for the bestiary represented, animals take on significant roles both as characters and as exemplars.

It’s more than just about keeping it real, it’s about keeping it right.
I’m just saying that I’d like it a lot — more than you’d think — if the sun would come out and sing to me.
