We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Cangjie Makes the Character

Cangjie makes the character(仓颉造字) is one of the Han myths and legends in ancient China. Cangjie was a historian officer during the years of the Yellow Emperor and he once collected, cleared and used previous characters. So he played an important role in the process of creating characters. He developed a Chinese character based on animal footprints and made a monumental feat in reproduction and prosperity for the Chinese nation. But people generally agreed that the Cangjie created characters all on his own is just a legend, but he may be a characters trimmer. And he was later revered as the "created characters saint."


















There is a Cangjie Tomb and Cangjie Temple in 35 kilometers away, northwest of Baishui County. Cangjie Temple is a national cultural relics protection units. The temple has more than 50 pieces ancient cypress and it is one of the ancient cypress group in China. Historians believe that Cangjie was born here and died here. Philologists also believe that Baishui is the head stream of Cangjie makes the characters, because the word head stream in Chinese can be separately written as Bai and Shui.

As a historian officer, Cangjie knots recorded history gave false facts to the Yellow Emperor, resulting in the Yellow Emperor and the Yan Emperor's defeat in the border negotiations. Later, Cangjie ashamed and resigned to wander the world, visited a good way to record history memos. Three years later, he returned to his hometown Baishui Yangwu village, living alone in deep groove and "won song of the formula Kuixing concept, observing birds and animals, feet and claws of the track", collated the material which was created out of the things in the world on behalf of various symbols. He gave these symbols a name, called word.


















The birth of Chinese characters is definitely not by one person in one hand and the power, it is a result of the development of long-term accumulation of ancestors. Modern archaeology discoveries inscriptions on bones or tortoise shells of the Shang Dynasty in 3,600 years ago, pottery characters about 4,000 years ago to 7,000 years ago, and turtle bone text about 7,000 years ago to 10,000 years ago. Legends handed down explained Cangjie should be a particularly significant contribution to the development of the characters in Chinese characters. He might be a master of Chinese characters.
