Daytrip: Qufu

Some of us went to Qufu, Confucius‘ hometown yesterday. The weather was perfect and we made the right decision to wait till spring came as the sights were glorious with lots of flowers.

There’s an abundance of ways to get around Qufu including electric cart, rickshaw and these horse-drawn carts.

I’d been here before when a friend, Scofield, took some of the teachers on an outing. I paled in comparison as a tour guide, but I did try to sprinkle in some facts here and there.
