Old Mud Houses in NingXia province,
Ningxia

This is a small village in the north of China, in the small province of Ninxia. Small in China has got another meaning... infact the province has got more than 6,000,000 of people. The name of this village is Tianji Zhang  and is not far from the main city YinChuan. Here people still live in small one-room houses made of mud, with a stove in the center and the beds that works also as benchs. The bed in the night are warmed by burning embers, put under the wooden box of the bed. THe temperature in winter could even drop 40 below the zero. The most of the people left to go in the modern YinChuan, a city that develop incredibly fast.
