A puppet show with audience in the foreground. A man performs magic tricks with a ball, cloth and cup. Food vendors on the street. 2. An American family drives in the countryside and uses simple ferries for river crossing. Views of a stone bridge with a Chinese person walking by, a river with passing watercraft. Ferry with closeups of arrival and loading the large American car on the ferry, which is like a simple raft. A pig by the roadside. Chinese family including children on a boat. Women steer and row a ferry with the car on board. Views of passing covered boats and watercraft at the ferry landing. Extended views of wooden ramps for boarding and getting off the ferry.
