... was scared at the speed we were going it was so exhilarating, I loved it! At least the roads were pretty much empty, not like the chaotic traffic around Houjie where you fear for your life every time you have to cross a road. The bike dropped me off at a tulou cluster in the absolute middle of nowhere, with no other tourists in sight. I walked through farmland, banana plantations, and paddy fields, with pigs and chickens running around my feet. It was really quiet - it was ...
