The Faces of Shanghai

Meet Wei Yufang and his family
魏玉芳 (山东籍 小贩) 我们的日子过得很苦,每顿都是煎饼就着咸菜吃,加上一杯白开水。孩子们想吃荤菜时,就烧一个鸡蛋给他们吃。只要不下雨,就天天早出夜归,每天做十五、六个小时生意。希望孩子们上好学,我那怕东借西凑也要让他们上大学,别象我这样没文化。大儿子很争气,每学期都得奖回家,我很开心。外出摆水果滩被地痞流氓欺负,让我伤心透了。

Wei Yufang (Shandongnese, Vendor): "We are leading a hard life and eat battercakes, pickles and a glass of water for all three meals. When our kids want meat dishes, we cook them an egg. We work more than 15 hours a day if it doesn't rain. We want our kids to be educated and not to live like us. I will risk anything if our kids can go to university. My eldest son is excellent and wins prizes every semester. I suffer being teased by local ruffians."
