Visited the Linden Centre for over a week on a Chinese cooking/cultural expedition. Loved the beautiful restoration of an authentic historic building; preservation of the old melded with some of the best up to date conveniences such as the lovely bathrooms. Brian and Jeanee Linden were excellent in making us comfortable and in sharing their love and knowledge of the Chinese people. It IS in a more remote area of China; that was one of the reasons I visited. I wanted to have an authentic experience before the modern world wipes out this old world life. Each day brought a new adventure and I treasure each one. Visits to the upstairs home of a village elder or to a local school were just two examples. The high regard the local people obviously hold for the Lindens sparkles through their eyes. I thought the entire trip was magical....the sunrise from the terrace simply frosting on the cake. Highly, highly recommended.
