Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Feb. 1, 2014: An Antique House in Fujian, China


On the second day of a 2 day tour of Fujian tulou clusters, begun with a large Chinese group on a bus and finished the next day alone on foot, I walked along a road with my non-English speaking guide and came upon this beautiful house.  Using sign language, our only option, he asked if I’d like to go inside.  I wandered around the beautiful old place, a roadside museum of sorts, showcasing its exquisite historic architecture, before walking on to the next tulou.

As all signs were in Chinese characters and my guide and I could not converse, I cannot tell you anything more about it except to say that, as I see it, beauty really needs no words.
