More Pod Houses!

Most of you are probably familiar with the erstwhile Pod Houses of Sanzhi, chronicled here and in other places.

I was, like maybe people, sad to see them go. They were not only world-famous (in a somewhat ironic sense, but still famous - famous enough to get on Wikipedia anyway) but quirky and fun and an example of the unexpected things one finds on this beautiful island.

Well, good news! There are more pod houses, brought to you by photographer Craig Ferguson. Craig doesn't give the address (presumably as people still live in some of them, so it isn't such a great idea to send the hipster foreign hordes looking for neat pictures there) but looking at the environment, I can take a fair guess at where they are and might go looking for them someday.

But really, it just warms my cynical little heart to know that the old pod houses might be gone, but the pod house legacy remains.
