From The Wall Street Journal, via A Glimpse of the World:
Shortly after Li Chunyan married five years ago, she sold her wedding gifts ” two water buffaloes ” and set up a tiny
medical clinic next door to a pigpen. Her only competition in this hamlet with no running water was a witch doctor who treats patients by chanting and ringing bells.
Villagers have opted for Ms. Li’s conventional cures. As a graduate of a three-year nursing-school program, the 28-year-old is by far the best-trained healer in these parts.
