Truly a paradise that unfolds to reveal may hidden works, treasure and tales attached to it with time.

A traditional earthen dwelling made in China in the rural mountainous Hakka regions is the Tulous, built between the 12th and the 20th centuries yes but they do have a reason for their creation. Back in the 12th century, the constant bandits attack, civil wars and other disturbing factors for many years affected the natives of Fujian province who were in search of a humble dwelling that was safe, secure and defensive, yet could hold a large community and guard against all odds. This search led them to create the Fujian Tulous, a classic defensive community living structure where over 800 people could live. A perfect example of a mini city dwelling within a city.

Marlborough Road is a disused London Underground station. It was opened in 1868 on the Metropolitan & St. John’s Wood Railway, the first northward branch extension from Baker Street of the Metropolitan Railway (now the Metropolitan Line). On contemporary maps the station name is shortened to Marlboro Road. The Metropolitan line’s Stanmore branch services were then transferred to the Bakerloo (now Jubilee) line on 20 November 1939 and diverted to run into Baker Street in the new tunnels, thus reducing the number of trains using the Metropolitan lines tracks.
