Taishan 1991 or 1992

Must be 1991 as I didn't go to Taishan in 1992.
The significance of the road. This is the road my grandfather was on when he left his village a century ago. He never had an opportunity to return. The same with my grandmother when she left for America. She never went back to this road though she always called the village "home".

This is also the road my mother was on when she left her village in the late 1940's. She returned once in 1988 and I had the honor of being with her and her sisters on that trip. I've made the trip several times and every time I feel that one of them should be in my place. I know that I'll go back again.
