In this Sept. 14, 2014 photo, Chinese fisherman Fan Qiusheng chats with a woman outside his wood-and-tarp shack on the Yingyu island, a Paracels of Sansha prefecture of China's Hainan province. Fan was waiting for tourists on the beach of Yingyu island outside the wood-and-tarp shack where he lives nine months of the year. He said the central government pays him 1,350 yuan, or about $220, a month to stay put while providing him with food, water, electricity and other supplies. (AP Photo/Peng Peng) less
