straw dog


A straw dog (芻狗) or rather a hemp pig waiting to be sacrificed in Ruifang (瑞芳) yesterday.

Ruifang is a gritty old mining town best known these days as a transit point for taking the train to Pingxi (平溪) or a bus or taxi to Jiufen (九份). While it has no major attractions, it’s worth a quick stroll around if you are waiting for a connection.
