Mind Blowing Real Village Life of Rural Mainland China
We are going to her house. There is a lot of farming going on around here. Look at her grandmother, she is so old and she is cooking. This is the real village life of China. Let me wrap it and eat it.
Hey guys, very good morning and welcome back to the new vlog. My name is Tourvashu. Right now I am in Xinjiang, the autonomous region's capital, Umochi. Today is my flight, finally out of Xinjiang. Today, I am going to Wuhan City, which is in Central China. You must have heard of Wuhan.
Wuhan is known as the source of the pandemic, where the pandemic outbreak happened. Right now it is 7 in the morning, my flight is at 8 am from Umochi to Wuhan. Wuhan is 3500 km, and my flight is for 4.5 hours.
My flight will reach Wuhan around 12.30 pm. My airline is Hainan Air. This flight cost me only 80$. I have checked in, I have taken the boarding pass.
This is my second domestic flight. First was Xi'an to Kashgar. I am going back to the main site of China, where most of the population lives. You can say that I am finally back to the normal world. After so much security checking, I am finally going to be released.
Instead of Urumqi, I am pronouncing it as Umurchi. In Chinese, it is called Wulumuchi. I had to wake up at 4 am and leave the hostel at 5 am. I have only slept for 2-3 hours in the night.
The boarding has started for my second domestic flight in China. Everything is automatic, everything. My boarding has just started. There is no one to check-in.
Cameras are installed, and they are scanning my face. Not even a passport and boarding pass. They are scanning my face and opening 2 gates. So guys, after traveling 3,500 km in 4.5 hours, we have finally reached Wuhan, which is in Central China.
Right now, I am at the Wuhan airport. At the place where I am staying in Wuhan, there is a Chinese family. There are 4-5 people in the family.
Maybe 1, 2, or 3 people have come to receive me outside the airport. We will get to know after reaching there. Now we have come to a completely different province.
The name of this province is Hubei Province. If I am pronouncing it correctly. Wuhan is the capital of Hubei Province.
The pandemic started from here and changed the whole world. Wuhan was the first city in the world where there was a lockdown. In January 2020. Let's see how life is in Wuhan.
At that time, life had stopped here. The whole city was closed for many months. There was a very dangerous lockdown in the whole city. Today, almost everything has become normal here. So, guys this is Huan. Huan from Wuhan.
She has come to receive me at the airport with her brother. Today, we will go to her house. So this is their car.
They have come to receive me. So first of all, we are going to the outskirts of Wuhan. Her mother's hometown.
She said it will take two and a half hours to reach. It's around 1 o'clock now. It will be 3.30 or 4 o'clock. She is also a Chinese world traveler.
She has also traveled to many countries. I have also traveled to around 60 countries. She has also traveled to around 60 countries.
But our countries are very different. So guys, we are outside of Wuhan. This is the highway of Wuhan. We will explore the city of Wuhan tomorrow.
Today we are going to the countryside of China. It's quite far from Wuhan. So you won't be able to see the city of Wuhan today. We are now in the countryside of China. You won't be able to see many small cars.
But you will be able to see many big cars and trucks. You can see trucks everywhere. You won't be able to see many small cars and light vehicles. There are many farms around here. Different vegetables are being planted.
She is converting Chinese to English and reading it. There are many old houses here. Very old-style houses. There are many hut-shaped houses here. You have to eat in the moving car.
We can't stop anywhere. There are many old houses here, Some new ones have been built. There are many hut-shaped houses here. The road has become very narrow here.
Two cars are not able to pass. So we had to back up. Some cars are coming. One more car is coming.
We have stopped. Maybe two cars won't be able to pass. The road has become very narrow here. We can say that... Maybe they are going to a village. We don't know where they are going.
There is water there. And there is water here. They say that sometimes, when it rains, the water comes up. So sometimes the road becomes dangerous when it rains. She is her's grandmother. This looks like a typical Chinese village.
They are making some dishes from rice. They are packing the rice dish. These red beans look like rajma. There are a lot of chickens here.
I had seen hens in Turpan and I can see more here. And these are their children. What do you say? So this is a typical house of a Chinese village. They say this house is 40 years old. This house is 40 years old. Founder of PRC Or China.

It's a village. So it's a bit similar. The landscape here is very similar to India. The style of the house is very similar to India.
So this is China's real village life. I have to show you a lot more. I was thinking the same. That this is a leaf. It's a corn leaf.

They also eat vegetables. I have got some vegetables. I can smell the garlic. I think this is a vegetable, I don't know.
This chair is for sitting. It's very thin. Her grandmother is asking. 'How was the food?' I am telling her again and again that 'It was very good' This is a vegetable and this smells a lot. We have reached another house.

The day and night will be fast, it will be at normal times. Because its close to Beijing. I don't know if we will stay here or go back to Wuhan.
we might stay here or we might go back. We are in the center of their village. It's a quiet place, it's like a town.
