The one we visited? – the one they repair – This is also the western type building they are repairing – and the one just near it? – yeah this one this is why we go through that narrow street – What is this? – It’s something like you can go higher and look at the view – So we can go higher and look at the view? – Yeah Maybe? – It looks like a temple to me! – Yeah – There’s no stairs so… well there is stairs but… – Yeah that’s a temple but I think they have stairs if not why would they build such high building? – There is you see, a ladder – Oh yeah – No I’m fine thank you – Old western-style house – Doesn’t look very western to me! – Oh yeah there’s an audioguide here! – This building is western type because it’s round and (there’s columns) – So now we will take the scooter and go to the next destination And we arrived so let’s go My shoes will get messy You can see China!!
