I knew this old village from a book.A book about old villages in Guangxi.
Jiangtou Village located in Jiuwu Town, Lingchuan County,northwest to Guilin.I went there with my best friend on a sunny morning,a memorial hall of Zhou Dunyi(the ancestor of the villagers) was at the entrance of the village,a small river flowing through this peaceful village.
You can get a glimpse of the villagers' carefree lifestyle from the common scene of small clusters of farmers enjoying a leisurely chat by the paddy fields, having laid down their hoes.

At Lingchuan County.
