Madeline was great in explaining history of the region plus the building history to. Quanzhou is more traditional then expected with the mix of different religions co-existing in the same building. The Luoyang bridge is stunning and still standing after a thousand years. Madeline and driver Mr Wang is flexible thus we had a quick stop at Xunpu the famed Walking Garden.
