I know there is a place where there is a small stream cross1ing the yard infused with flowers. It is where we lived, where our memories remained. I also know that there is a pathbifurcated from the end with several footprints. Once we stopped on this road for a while, then return to where we were from.
We had been sitting in the yard, watching two trees. I was worried about the trees would get higher and higher and when we came back, we would no longer see its top. You said that you will come and visit. After that, I wondered every day that when we will go to Gu Family’s Compound in the ancient town, Zhaohua.
Accommodation is always a problem whenever I travel. Iwant to choose comfortable ones and also the ones with local flavor. We planned to travel in the ancient town Zhaohua. I booked an inn online optionallywithout highly expectation. It took 3 hours by motor train from Chengdu to Guangyuan which is short for us since we travelled a lot. In addition to there was a little bump in the road from Guangyuan to Zhaohua, the rest were okay. We arrived at the ancient city at 8 pm. Because it was off-season, there wasvery few tourists making me think that the ancient city was in maintenance and did not receive the outsiders. Walking on thequartzite of the ancient city, the air was mixed with slight cold wind making me sneeze. I felt depressed. We were almost all terrible with directions and we just could not find the inn. I couldn’t help myself stop complaining. Maybe it was because the God was annoyed by my chatter, and finally sent an angel to lead us. A warmhearted old man led us to Gu’s Family Compound while smoking cigarettes. Walking through the alleys, the wind infused my nose with the smelly second-hand smoke, letting me cry without tear.
Gu’s Family Compound, four bronzing characters appeared in front of us.The threshold of the house was very high. It is said that it was anti-ghosts set. And also showed that the family's reputation was high too! You could feel Xianghe Church’s history from its threshold and steps.The scenery of courtyard had local flavor too. In the night, the light was very dark.The antique old house with tonight's moonlightlet me had a chill. Walking into the yard, the scenery was too charming to hold it personally.So I posted the photos to wechat moments pretending that I was a literature connoisseur.I thought the owner of the yard was very emotional for yard with various kinds of flowers and the eye-catching design of its layout,Checkout was facing the main entrance of the compound. I found check-in everywhere but lost because I did not know that the account equaled check-in.It was so embarrassing.I would have been a typical illiterate in the ancient.Gu’s Family Compound was located in the Nanmen Alley of Zhaohua. It was the most well-preserved compound in the south-west region. Its architectural style was classic and courtyard facilities were in good condition,called the only remaining fossils of ancient Sichuan Province . And Gu’s Family Compound was the most dazzling pear in the ancient city. Gu’s Family Compound was built in the late Ming Dynasty. The entire courtyard was sitting south to north.It is said that it was easy for the residents to absorb the essence of sun and moon, conducive to the residents of health and longevity. The compound was a 400 years old courtyard. The housing price ranging from 200 yuan to 1,000 yuan with different conditions. We chose an affordable room, in fact, this room was not bad. It was clean with classical decoration. I suggest that you can visit there in the off season since the cheapest price of one room in busy season is 400 yuan at least. From the hall to the room, the scenery was very good and suitable for everyone to take pictures,.We looked at the flowers, hoping the sunrise sun rise tomorrow, lying on a chair, drinking tea, reading books.What an enjoyable evening!
I got up early in the morning, wandering in the garden. It was the beginning of the spring, the courtyard was infused with red plum blossoms and I was delighted by such exquisite scenery.If you come to Gu’s Family Compound, you will think of how decent the owner was. A person who knows how to live, always try to make his life full of spice. Recalling the years in the university, my teacher always asked me what life I want to live and what person I want to become.I was uncertain at that time.After working for a few years, struggling for life.I think it is the time to ask myselfwhat life I want to live now,exciting but unsettled or stable but dull.In fact, I do want them both and know how to love it, enjoy it, and also live in this life. Now the city people want to have a yard life, a rest place. The recommendation of Gu’s Family Compound is not a commercial speculation.It is the first time I felt that we should go home and accompany our parents to enjoy the joy of reunion.
There is a white dog in the yard called “snowball”. Every time he saw us carrying food, he just followed our back. In a sunny day, walking in the yard followed by a dog. What a harmonious picture! The ancient city style remaining its origin with rich historical and cultural heritage, is the ideal place for tourism and archaeological research.
