Who knows? But i can say that for me one place i would like to live for a year would be Hotan (HeTian) maybe 河天 in Xinjiang Prov. Seemed a place with lots of clean, healthy living, close to nature, a river, lots of fruits and vegies, good weather, low human density and intersting people. Probably a bit slow for most folks here, did i see a liquor store?? Can't remember. But it would be nice to be away from the Han influence for a while and learn how others answer life's questions. I really liked the colorful dresses and hair bonnets the ladies and girls wore; muslim folks you know. The billions of Han all have the same answer, it seems. As an aside, and an example of Han custom i do not like, yesterday at the pet street market i saw some wild birds caged and for sale. Very unpleasant to see woodpeckers and rails in a cage. How can they be pets? Even the filthy river running through my town has a bankside full of fishermen. Will they eat those fish or birds or feed the cat? 'Nature' to many of the Han i have met seems a TV episode only.
