Western Sichuan province over Chinese New Year, visiting relatives (not mine) who lived high in a remote mountain. Their humble abode had very simple living conditions- dirt floors, no electronics, a stove that required someone to continuously feed and stoke the fire when in use- so I was surprised to see this satellite dish nestled in the bricks.

This would have been no big deal, I mean mountain residents deserve HBO too, but what confused me was that I saw neither a television nor any outlets or signs of electricity.
