A roadside shrine

shrine

One afternoon we walked into a hutong near Yang He Gong. Outside a house near the entrance was this impressive road-side shrine. The light was wonderful when I took this photo. A man came out to talk to us, but he spoke Mandarin, which we could not follow. We walked further into the winding lanes. People relaxed outside their houses. The shrine must have been extremely protective of the neighbourhood, because as we walked one tiny little dog tried to bite my feet. Fortunately my footwear defeated its teeth.

I travel on work. When that gets too tiring then I relax by travelling for holidays. The holidays are pretty hectic, so I need to unwind by getting back home. But that means work.
