xiangirl has indicated that this thread is about China

I was born in Xi'an, Shaanxi province. And Now I am working in Hefei, Anhui. These two photos were taken at the foot of Huang Mountain. A vallige called Hong Cun and a valley named valentine valley.

The cabinet in Hong Cun vallige that I took was built in Ming Period. The daughter of this family stood on the second floor and look down from there. Many of single boys gathered outside on the street. The girl would choose a boy she liked and throw the embroidered ball to him. Very interesting, right? so I took it with my camera.:p

And the beautiful water was taken from valentine valley. It is said that the some episodes of the movie <Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon > Ang Lee directed were taken here. It's really a fantastic place.

I just upload two photos I took in Anhui. Next time I can post some photos I took in Xi'an my home town. It is the most lovely city with long history. Do you love my home town? Have you been there? hehe

I visited there in the may last year. I went to hong cun from Hefei, Anhui. It tooks about 6 hours to get there. Our guide showed us the whole village. There're two villages at the foot of Huang mountain. One is Hong Cun and the other is Xi Di. Hong Cun was made in Ming Period and Xi Di in Qing Period. There're lots of houses, rooms and cabinets in the villages.
