It was great because it was so early in the morning that I had the place to myself and it still felt very real, rather than geared up for tourists - all kinds of farm animals wondering around the paths, the residents here sitting outside chatting or playing cards, and inside the tulous (you could wander in but not go upstairs) people were busy having breakfast, washing clothes, cleaning or sorting out the animals.

Had a lazy day today staying around the Hotel Indigo. We walked down Zhongshan Lu and had lunch at Aijsen Ramen, one of our favourite Japanese restaurant chains.
