Biking XiangFen (襄汾县)

The the Fen River (汾河)…

Fencheng town's (汾城镇) Chenghuang Temple (城隍庙). I've seen Chenghuang translated as "town god". The sign out front says the place was established by the Ming emperor HongWu (明洪武) in 1369.

"谴责美国" - "Condemn America"
This newspaper from 1973 was stuck to wall inside one of the buildings.

These last two are from Wei Village (尉村). It was super dusty and I wasn't feeling well so I didn't take too many pictures.

This is a statue of Guan Yunchang (关云长) also known as Guan Yu (关羽) or Guan Gong (关公). He was a general and sworn brother to the war lord Liu Bei (刘备) from the Three Kingdoms period of China (三国时代).

A biking trip through Xiangfen County (襄汾县), still part of greater Linfen (临汾).
