The men of Yunnan (5)- Scavenging on the brink of survival

I know I have made a little fun of the, well…the lax men of Yunnan, but this is definitely not one of them.

This young man trifled through seeds and garbage on the ground and took it up to his mouth without a moment’s hesitation. It was heartbreaking to watch. What a handsome man with so kind eyes. How did he end up like this?
