While our Internet is stable here’s one more post from Guangzhou. We are Vietnam bound tomorrow! Fingers crossed our flight won’t be affected by the aftermath of Typhoon Mujigae which made landfall here today. We are fine. Just lost power for a few hours.
A couple of weeks ago we visited the exquisite Chen Clan Ancestral Hall. It was built between 1888-1894 as a place of ancestral worship for the Chen Family and to house Chen family members when they came to the provincial capital for governmental examinations. It currently houses the Guangdong Folk Art Museum. The ancestral hall itself is a work of art as it comprises a large collection of woodcarving, stone carving, brick carving, pottery, plaster and iron engraving.
