I took a boat out at 4 o'dark to try to find some of these fisherman early in the morning. This is on the Li River in southern China. I was in another boat, not much bigger or safer than this one, and we were speeding along at a break neck pace. The water was black; the sky was black. My mood was dark. I can't believe we didn't have some terrible boat accident into the empty black, but everything turned out okay, and then we found this wonderful fisherman coming out of the fog.
