Like a lot of people, I'll be watching a lot of TV on the Olympics next two weeks.

My late grandfather had told us that his grandmother was a Miao. His grandfather had been a Ching Dynasty administrator working in a Miao ethnic region, and had married a Miao woman. Just a bit of ancestral trivia, but I found it interesting, and as a teenager I dug up a fair bit of reading material on China's Miao minority.
