The Chinese Communist Party often relies on the modern skylines of Beijing and Shanghai to show off their "progress" to the west. What they don't show however are areas that lack some of the basic buildings essential to the community, schools for example.
In 1994, the residents of the Miao Village, in China's Guizhou province, took matters into their own hands and constructed a school.
They certainly picked an interesting spot.
