In this photo taken Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012, dusty remnants of an abandoned cave dwelling where Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping used to live during his youth when he was sent to learn peasant virtues at Liangjiahe village in northwestern China's Shaanxi province. Xi, 59 and the country's vice president is expected to take over as head of the ruling party in November, 2012, before becoming president in 2013 of an increasingly assertive China. The Liangjiahe years are among scant details known about Xi's life and personality partly because he himself chronicled them as a key formative experience. (AP Photo/Ng Han Guan)
