This week theme.
“Fangsheng bridge” (setting-fish-free bridge), the longest stone bridge with five openings was built in 1571. The name represents the customary release of fish back to the sea. They believe releasing the gold fish is for the purpose of good luck.
Lovely photo! This is a lovely custom but do the gold fish actually survive this?
Thanks not only for an interesting picture but for a quick glimpse into a custom I’ve never heard of before.
It’s a pity this same culture kills so many endangered animals in the belief that their horns or blood or bones can cure illness, and that their ivory makes good craft objects and that they torture so many sharks by cutting off their fins and throwing the living shark back in the water and all for the sake of their fins to make soup.
