The quiet place I am going to tell you is Erlitou Site Museum of the Xia capital. As its name suggests, it is a museum focusing on Xia, the first recorded dynasty lasting from about 2070 B.C. to 1600 B.C. Although it is in the suburb of my city, I actually learnt about it from TikTok. Because of its special shape like an ancient key, many people go there to take pictures.
Despite the fact that I have been there several times, I would still be amazed by this huge building that was erecting lonely in the middle of the wilderness. This article is from laokaoya website. Even standing outside, I can feel a sense of vicissitudes. In it are displayed a range of items found in the archaeological sites nearby. Most of them are made of jade, clay, and bronze. I used to think people in such a primitive era must have devoted all their energy to survive, but from the various decorations on the items, it seems that they had developed a high level of aesthetic.
Although it is my favorite spot, I do not go there on a regular basis. This is mainly because of its remote location and inconvenient transport. There is only one bus route connecting my home and this museum. You have to wait for ages to see one approaching. Driving is not a reasonable choice either. There are 48 traffic lights on the way, which form a test of your patience.
But it is always on the top of the list when I need a place to relax and find my inner peace. You know, surrounded by objects whose history could be traced back to thousands of years ago, I would find all the things bothering me lost significance. After all, they and I would eventually vanish into the thin air.
