I took my E-400 for a spin (Imgs)
Hongcun was a location for the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
We stayed in the village for 100RMB, with an additional 80RMB for the entrance fee to this historical site. Thats about US$27.
Up before dawn and the tourist hordes, here are some photos:
The bridge to the village
No washing machines here
Art students everywhere
And old streets/buildings/detail everywhere!
Thanks for looking.
If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.
