My first impression of Xizhou was much more different than what I expected. I expected a village with lots of farm places but when I visited the village, I saw lots of restructured ancient bai houses. Also, I was really surprised with the blue sky and the rich red soil. When we walked around the village to meet Mr.D, at first we saw a normal house with lots of bricks. But truly inside his house had artifacts that were more than hundreds of years. Mr.D was an artifact collector and those bricks had Buddhism carving that was pieces of a door.
