Today was spent predominantly exploring the Chuxi Tulou Cluster, about 40km south-east of Yonding County. There are five circular  Tulou buildings and over a dozen rectangular ones that make up Chixi village. 

We went on a short hike around the village and then explored the insides of the circular buildings. These structures are typical of the Hakka earth buildings built during the reign of Emperor Yongle in the Ming Dynasty.  They are composed of two concentric rings, each with four storeys.  Normally, one Hakka earth building has two or four staircases leading to the upper floors. The views over the site were incredible – very unique and very peaceful. 

Students appreciated the calm environment, especially as the weather was kind to us.  In the evening, students presented their thoughts and reflections of the day to each other – a very entertaining experience for all!
