"Where you find oceans you’ll find Chinese.” In order to find a living, Chinese were willing to leave home to venture to a foreign land half a world away in the southern hemisphere. The “Overseas Chinese” production team travelled to Cuba, Mexico, and Peru to trace the footsteps of the early Chinese there; to find out how they laid down their lives to develop the wilderness. Like the desert flower Cachanilla, Chinese can survive in any harsh and inimical environment.

    It is said that in Lima, the capital of Peru, there are a few thousand Chinese restaurants. It is among the highest concentration in the world. In the markets in Peru you will find kale, winter melon and chives. They use soy sauce in stir-fry. Their main staples are rice and fries. Lomo Saltado, a Peruvian dish known in every household combines the essence of both Chinese and Peruvian cuisines. The different kinds of Chinese vegetables found in Peruvian markets are grown locally. They were introduced to Peru by the early Chinese labourers who helped to develop vegetable farming in the country. Just in terms of food and agriculture it is obvious that the Chinese have a far-reaching influence.

    In Mexicali, a Mexican frontier town, there is a place called “The Chinese Hill”. It was where the early Chinese labourers perished under very brutal conditions. For every ten hectares of land developed, a Chinese labourer would lose his life. But their blood and sweat helped to turn Mexicali, originally a barren wilderness, into the most important cotton producing centre in the early 20th century. It even came to be known as “Little Canton”. However, its prosperity did not last. The Great Depression in the 1930s affected Mexico as well. The Chinese who were growing in wealth became targets of hostility. It developed into full blown persecution. Mexican women with Chinese husbands were deported with their families to China. It was not until 1960 that the Mexican government was willing to take back the Mexican Chinese families living in Hong Kong and Macau. So 325 of them were repatriated. But after 30 years of displacement, the new generation of Mexican Chinese had to embark on yet another migratory journey. Cachanilla is a flower in the Mexican desert that can survive in the most inimical conditions just like the Chinese who put down roots in Mexico.

    Louie Kin Sheun is a writer and a historian. For him Cuban is a sad page in his life.
    His grandfather and father had worked hard to make a living there. But in the end it all came to naught. When his mother was still alive she was reluctant to talk about this period and this place. Many years later he is still curious to know if his father had left traces of his life there. Driven by this curiosity, he has visited Cuban numerous times to reveal the immigration history of the Cuban Chinese which went from prosperity to decline.
