Technically, Chongqing is a municipality, same as Beijing and Shanghai, or a city with a province status. However, Chongqing covers a much larger area ( 80,000 sq km ) than Beijing ( 16,000 sq km ) and Shanghai ( 6,000 sq km ). Thus it would be helpful to think Chongqing as a "province" with the provincial capital as Chongqing city.

Today I am going to introduce a ordinary city, in terms of economy or population, in Chongqing region. The city is Fuling ( 涪陵 ). Since we have been seen too many buildings in China, this thread will be more focused on PEOPLE in Fuling.

While comparing dollar by dollar (or rather yuan by yuan), these farmers are much poorer than their counterparts in urban areas, but their lives aren't exactly nearly as bad. The reason for that quite simple, the standard of living is much lower in rural areas than urban areas, so one doesn't need to earn as much money to afford similar things. At least these farmers have food, shelter, jobs, things that many poor in cities, be it China or the U.S., simply don't have.
