Fenghuang’s old town wall glows a warm pink when it is bathed in the evening sun. All day long, tourists meander its length, admiring the small carvings that adorn the roofs above. I find its structure a little confusing — were the houses on the other side of the wall once not a part of the town? Chinese tourist sites tend to be a little low on explanatory material, so this question was never answered. Nonetheless, the pink sandstone and old-fashioned architecture combine to make a lovely experience.
This is the latest in a series of Friday snapshots featuring photos from my travels in China and beyond.
