Four kilometres, a funeral and Jiaxiu tower…

Today was a lesson in dominant culture perception! I took a video of the noise associated with a function near my home.  I thought it was a wedding, turned out to be a funeral.

White is not weddings here, red is weddings and white is for funerals.

The noise and activity will go on for three days for this funeral.

On other matters I walked four kilometres looking for good coffee and found a funky coffee house 800 m from home.  Plus I spent time at the fabulous Jiaxiu Tower built in 1597 🙂 which I intend to hang out more because it’s less than 500m from my home 🙂
