    ... major modernization the rest of China is going there. Most of the residents were elderly people. Hardly any young adults.

    I explored the village and could not believe the natural scenery and the old buildings. As I continued up a trail, I stumble upon a maze, which I did not do, but others did. It was hilarious to see how many times people tried to figure the maze out.

I tell Mum I am happy to wait, she can go in but she doesn’t want to pay that amount either. So we take some snaps from the fence and then, how do we get back into town? Because we had caught the taxi up the last bit, there are no public buses. Mum wants me to ...

    ... ranging in size, decoration, depth and exterior, it was truly a delight to just walk along beside them and take it all in. The bigger caves had huge Buddhas carved into the walls, and then they were surrounded by a thousand smaller buddhas all with their own unique features.
