Chen Village
  A Photographic Review
  The following photos were taken on a recent trip taken in October, 2005. The Village has taken on a new look with China developing faster than ever before. The ambience has changed over the last 5 years. The gullied dirt roads, narrow lanes and "old" halls are now gone. But if you look hard, you may see some remembrances of these things gone.
    Now, there are new wide paved roads, new halls with murals, stelles, statues and manicured garden. Admission charged to enter the Halls area and buses running to and from WenXian.....The county seat.
    As in the rest of China, change has come to Chenjiagou.......................
