Photo from Minority Park outside Guilin

I took this photo on our November trip to Guilin. The trip was an organized tour, which included a stop of the at a Minority Village Park similar to the one discussed in the New York Times article I pointed out previously. This park housed several “villages” where people from ethnic minority groups wore traditional clothing, sang traditional songs and dances traditional dances, and practiced traditional crafts in newly constructed buildings showcasing the architectural styles of each group. As visitors at the park, we sat in a long-boat passing by each group’s area. Each group had a stage right on the water, and they danced and sang as we passed by. Our guide called the structure a traditional meeting house.
