Sandy H. Hom and a few of her family members visit some rice fields outside Sandy's old house during a return trip to Toisan (Taishan Shi) in the Guangdong Province in China. From left to right: Anna Hom (Sandy's daughter), Yip Hom (sister in law), a water buffalo, Sandy, Tao Hom (nephew; Yip Hom's husband) and Angela Hom (daughter).
