Bamboo Diaries

An excerpt by Jonas Jungblut

 

from a 30-page literary supplement included in Volume 3°  

 

"An old lady is sorting poles outside and she gives me an intriguing look. It’s pretty quiet except for the occasional car, bike or truck zooming by on the road. There is bamboo everywhere. I mean forests of it in every direction. We sure left the chaos and noise of the city behind which feels really good even though it is very cold.

       ...The next two stops at factories play out similar to the first. Whilst the others take a look around, I run off taking photos. I should clarify that the factory in this case has nothing to do with large multi-story buildings with steaming chimneys. These factories are actually huts or small hangar-type buildings stuffed full with bamboo and a bunch of people running around doing mostly everything by hand. No rooms are truly inside, just covered, so it’s cold where these people work. We finally stop at Charles’ family’s factory and they have a nice spot carved out for them. Right on the river with vegetable patties leading up to the water..."
