What are some special traditions/culture in the village where we will live?

As a village of mostly Bai Minority people, Xizhou has a special history. Given its unique location along an ancient trade route, Xizhou has been influenced for thousands of years by the passing through of many different groups. Daily life in and around Xizhou includes events that are a part of village life throughout the world: markets, festivals, celebrations, and even the occasional funeral passing through. Xizhou is located a short bike ride from Lake Erhai, which provides fish for the area and water for the crops.
