I was planning to spend some time in Kaili, but then find out about the same stupid regulation about not permit to stay in economic guesthouse is posted in this international tourist city! well...I happily departed after a quick visit to the lively market in town. I took the hour bus trip to nearby Fuquan County that is prospered by phosporus industry, which welcome me with more than enough standard accomodations in reasonable price. Fuquan had a long history with part of its city wall still exist, and the 4 city gates could be located, even the Eastern citygate had been reelected. but the most outstanding are on the western end where the old water system and the moat are still working, said it does withstood many seige in the old day. seem like the authority are trying to retrace the city wall and making a lot of renovating job at the moment, guess one need to pay to visit it in the future. Few kilometer further down the river from the western gate is another sight, the Sajingu valley, it could be a couple of kilometer walk inside the valley inside the deep gorge which actually was an ancient trading passway. but without much management, many part of the trail had been broken down and able to walk through, still...the short walk offered pretty scene, but the problem was the surrounding are all mine and chemical factories. I also went to Xianqiao looking for a natural bridge, yeahhh....I am a tourist now for sight seeing! there was no difficulty to located the bridge as the local are very eager to help. the huge arch hidden right behind the village with a small river running through, the sight a rather pretty. for the minority scene...same like in Majiang, Fuquan lived mostly Buyi, and they are all dress in Han style, so it was a surprised to seen some Miao when visited the live and noisy Machangping market, simple head turban, jacket full of embrodery and patch work, colourful waist belt and indigo printed pleated skirt. said in most of western side of the County one could find their appearance.
