Village Street

A lot of history and character in a street like this. A small village with more then a thousand years of stories to talk about, and the newest story is that this place no longer exists. There are a lot of these small places that have remained untouched by most of the influences of the modern world, although it seems tourism has leaked into the day to day life style. One resident of this place even opened up his house to tourists to come in and have a look, for 5rmb of course. Now that these people dont live here anymore and have moved into the larger towns around I wonder how they will fit in to a more modern life.

The blacks are so rich that they could almost be DMAX in black and white.

Do places like that get many tourists? Are those tourists Chinese from other parts of the country or foreigners?

That kind of street has obviously been around since a long time before cars or other vehicles existed! :)
