The May Project
25th May

My name is Alan Chu.  This is a photo of me and my father with several relatives that I met for the first time in China.  We are all sitting on the gravesite of my great-grandfather set on a hillside in the rural outskirts of Guangzhou after paying our traditional respects.  The trip was memorable for many reasons, but this picture was a special memory of the visit.  Although I only could speak a few words of Chinese and my newly acquainted relatives could only speak a few words of English, we somehow managed to communicate as though we had known each other for a life-time.
