Zhang Xiaofei, a 64-year-old farmer, holds a hookah in his hand and sits at the mouth of the village to smoke cigarettes. The drought in the past few days has already made Zhang Xiaofei idle for a few months at home, but he doesn't like this "leisure" life at all. He is expecting a heavy rain. He is looking forward to being cracked at home as soon as possible after the heavy rain. The land can be planted with crops.

Zhang Xiaofei is a farmer in Xiaoyangchang Village, Fuyuan County, Yunnan Province. It is also one of the most severely affected areas of drought in Yunnan Province. When the reporter came here for an interview on the 13th, he met him at the entrance of Xiaoyangchang.

Zhang Xiaofei told reporters that the drought for seven or eight months has not been seen in his life. The small spring crops in his home have all been closed. There is no work in the field. Most of the main labor force in the village has gone out to work. Now there are only old people and children in the village. Xiaoyangchang Village is a typical mountainous area on the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau. It is located at the junction of Yunnan Province and Guizhou Province. Due to its location in the mountainous area, the water source is very scarce, and the crops are mainly corn, potatoes and flue-cured tobacco.

Zhang Xiaofei said that at this time of the past year, it was the time when farming was busy, and every day, I worked in the fields until the evening. "Now it is very leisurely. Every day, I get up to the village water supply point to take a bucket of water to go home, and then simply eat some food. The rest of the time is to sit in the mouth of the village or go home to sleep." This is seen as enjoyment, then In Zhang Xiaofei's mouth, it is so helpless.

The water supply point is two large water containers installed by the local government in the village for drought relief, and then water is injected from a few kilometers away. This is the only source of water for hundreds of villagers in Xiaoyangchang. Zhang Xiaofei told reporters that before the water supply point was completed, he got up at 6 o'clock every morning and walked with the villagers for more than three hours to go back to the water to go home. Now, Zhang Xiaofei can get 2.5 kilograms of water a day. These only waters are first to satisfy cooking and drinking, and then wash their faces once a day, while the water that washes their feet and feet is left to feed the animals.

When it comes to eating, Zhang Xiaofei is even more bitter: "The drought, we basically have no food supply. Every day, we use corn to grind it into powder, mix it with rice and steam it, then fry a soybean and cook a potato soup. The two little grandchildren lost their temper when they came to eat, but if they continue to fall like this, they will be afraid of such a meal."

In recent days, Zhang Xiaofei has been sitting in the village for 4 hours every day. Looking at the yellow eyes outside the village, he can't say what he is waiting for. When the reporter left, he got up and went home. Because the farmer had not fed water for a day, he had to go back and look after him. He could not forget his only current job. (Zhongguo Xinshe)
