Unexpected Funeral in Fujian

While exploring the fascinating tulou in Fujian, I came upon this. I wasn’t sure what was happening. Outside the tulou, there were elaborate floral arrangements.


People were coming and going, but I noticed a smaller house in the middle and I was directed to go inside. That’s what made it Unexpected. I have been shooed away from funeral spectacles before.


Fascinating – and I was never made to feel unwelcome.


I guess I would have known if I had a guide or could read Chinese characters. Here’s the amazing thing: I explore China without either – usually- and I have no real problems. And so I am Enchanted By China!!!!
