Children Face Formidable Path to School (8 pics)

Posted in Random » Weird   17 Nov 2011   / 9444 views

Once you see these horrific photos you will no longer think your route to school was very difficult.

 

In the remote northwestern Chinese village of Pili, children are scooped up at the beginning of each school term to begin the long, arduous and very difficult journey to their classroom.

Approximately 80 kids are taken along a 125-mile route through the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region. They face almost sheer rock faces, freezing roiling river waters, narrow pathways and single wood plank “bridges.” The treacherous passage takes an entire two days, during which they have little water to drink despite having the surging river next to them.

This is true. I saw a documentary on them making this trek to go to a boarding school.

Impressive.

Yet, you get the impression from the text (and images) that they WALK the 125 miles in two day - 62 miles a day. Even on a flat road, 4 miles per hour is quite brisk walking, and few of us can keep up that speed more than fifteen hours a day for two days. In a lanscape like this, I wouldn't count on more than half that speed, or even less.

This journey is so impressive as it is that there is no need to exaggregate in an attempt to impress even more. Boasting can destroy far more than modesty will hide. I suspect that the kids themselves would be far more modest than the news media presenting them...
