 4/14/2018 Zhongdong, Guizhou Province, China.  A resident of Zhong cave herded his cattle out to pasture past some of the cavern's newer homes, built with wood, rather than woven bamboo.  The small community of residents of the Zhong cave in the rural eastern mountains of China's Guizhou province have lived an isolated farming existence for at least three generations, when their ethnic Miao great grandparents and great great grandparents fled to the caves of the region, fleeing the violence and banditry that was common in the area during the Kuomintang era. Today, the future of the 18 families that still reside in the cave is uncertain, as tourism to the cave increases, and pressure from the local government has increased on them to move to newly constructed housing in the valley floor.
 2/6/2017 Fordlandia, Brazil  Old vehicles and equipment are stored in the old workshops of Fordlandia, abandoned by the American's in the 1930's after Henry Ford's rubber plantation project there failed.  In the 1920's Henry Ford's Ford Motor Company sought to avoid having to buy rubber from the British by establishing a plantation on the western bank of the Tapajos river in the Amazon region of Brazil. The project, located in a remote corner of the Amazon with no road access, was beset from the beginning by high costs, and failures, after successive plantings of Rubber trees on cleared forest ground were plagued by disease and fungus. Despite the challenges, a factory, warhorses, a hospital, and numerous employee quarters were built to house the nearly 5,000 workers that were brought to the site. The project was ultimately abandoned in 1934 by the Ford Motor Company at a loss of millions of dollars, having never produced a single bit of rubber for Ford. Today, the remains of Ford's project are slowly being overtaken by the rainforest once again.
