The Hakka buildings were amazing. the families used to live communally in a fortress type building, with the animals on the ground floor and living accommodation above, very similar to Shakespeare's Globe.

I had been aware that the Chinese liked to smoke and I had seen a much larger proportion of smokers from Hong Kong onwards, but the people here just made them all look like lightweights. Every one of them seems to have a little white stick permanently attached to their lips. They are very polite though, in just 2 hours of being here I think I had to turn down ...
