Yesterday, we visited Xidi (another UNESCO site) which is very popular with art students. There was no Starbucks, but we did go to “Xidi Thirsty Lounge”.
It was a bit like Venice.
We then visited Xiuli which is a village used for making films – we will be watching some Chinese films when we get back to Shanghai!
This is the village closest to our hotel. We visited the houses of 6 wives & a school. Some wives were more favoured than others! This is a heated chair. You sit inside it while hot charcoal is placed in the grate below. I suppose that it would be very effective, although it could double as a barbeque.
