'Haven of Peace'
Dangzhen, a village in Pingtang County, which is in the Bouyei and Miao Autonomous Region in Southwest China's Guizhou Province, boasts gorgeous mountains, lush plants and beautiful scenery. Far removed from the hustle and bustle of the world, the villagers live peacefully in the small village (about 1,000 meters bove sea level) in the remote mountainous area. They enjoy the fresh air and the singing of the birds and insects. No wonder some people call Dangzhen a "haven of peace."
As they walk along the winding mountain road, people will no
doubt see a wooden, one-story house that is surrounded by terraced fields. Yang Shengzhong, 109, and his wife, Jin Jifen, 106, call it home.
Despite their advanced ages, the elderly couple still looks very healthy. Although their sight and hearing are waning, Yang and Jin stay fit, both physically and mentally, mainly due to their simple, regular lifestyle.
