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.
We had a tea tasting session and walked through little stalls selling tobacco, fruit, crafts and tea.
A really lovely trip, which only cost us 218RMB for the whole day from 7.20am to 7.20pm. Fabuluous!
... But it was a total mob scene with Chinese tour groups. Ended the day leisurely wandering around the village my Tulou was in and found it nice and peaceful like the first cluster I visited. Then spent the evening hanging out in the courtyard of the Tulou in which I was staying. I realized that it definitely was a historic Tulou when the occasional tour group trickled through. Pictures will say much more than this narrative will but sadly the Internet at this new Hostel is not great either ...
... the 7th generation of the original family who built it. The remaining 3/4 of the Tulou that isn't the hotel is still occupied by his extended family. My room is on the top (5th) floor. Went for an evening stroll to see a few of the other Tulous nearby and tomorrow I will take a day trip to see a few of the nearby clusters. On my evening stroll I came across a boy and girl maybe eight years old. They were making figures out of string. ...
... paper from the outside and throw it in a wastebasket beside the toilet. I cannot WAIT to get back to regular bathrooms in public places!! : ) We drove back from the airport and saw nothing but apartment buildings...EVERYWHERE. Our hotel was very nice, and we quickly dropped off our bags. Dinner was buffet with David and Terry. Terry and I joked about how piggy we looked with our dessert plates : ) : ) LOL : ). Fun and Tiring Day! ...
... some of the more well maintained ones as it sort of felt more authentic. It really was like stepping back in time being here with the cobbled stone floors with chickens running about.
Literally no sooner than had I dropped my bag in my currently powerless room than I was introduced to a tout wanting to sell me a tour of the local roundhouses. Unfortunately enlisting someone's services here is essential if you want to see the sights. the main ones are spread out ...
