There are 1.3 billion people in China, each with their own personal story...

Shan Shengyong, a farmer in north China's Hebei Province, is already 66, but still enjoys farming.

He cultivates 18,000 square meters of land, growing potatoes, corn and green beans.

He has two sons, and they have both settled down in Beijing. They call home every month, and come home once a year for the Chinese New Year.

"They have asked me to go live with them. But I enjoy the weather here, and I have a lot of freedom at home," he says.

He says he and his wife will go live with them when he is too old to farm.
