“Master, let’s find an inn to stay in first.”
Emperor Jing nodded: “Alright, it seems that I will stay here for a few more days.”
Then the two started walking down the street.
Looking for an inn is not in a hurry, there are so many new things in Taoyuan County, Emperor Jing is a little dizzy.
“If all the counties and cities in the world are like Taoyuan County, I don’t have to worry about it,” Emperor Jing sighed in his heart.
Suddenly, Guo Tianyang’s eyes lit up!
“My lord, there is an inn here!”
When Emperor Jing raised his head, he was speechless.
It really is called Youjian Inn, and there is a small official character in the lower right corner of the plaque, I don’t know what it means.
Emperor Jing raised his leg and entered, Guo Tianyang heaved a sigh of relief behind him.
Seeing a guest enter the door, the shopkeeper greeted him enthusiastically.
“Welcome to the two guest officers! Do you want to be a top player or stay in a hotel?”
“Stay in the store.”
“Okay, this store is divided into first-, second- and third-class rooms, first-class five-liang, second-class three-liang, third-class one-liang, which class do you live in?”
Five two one night! ?
Guo Tianyang was not happy anymore, he took a step forward: “Why is your inn so expensive? Five-two-one-night, could it be that they only slaughter foreigners?!”
The shopkeeper quickly waved his hand and said with an apologetic smile, “What are you talking about? Our shop is innocent. It’s the same price when you go out and inquire about it!”
“We are still a government-run hotel, and the price is at least 20% cheaper than outside!”
When Emperor Jing heard it, he became interested: “Official camp? The government’s inn?”
The shopkeeper nodded: “Exactly! All the big industries in the county are basically government-run. This inn was named by our county magistrate himself. It was built for the convenience of foreign merchants.”
“Let me tell you, don’t think it’s too expensive for five-two and first-class houses. You may not be able to grab all the third-class houses when merchants come to make large-scale purchases!”
“That’s good! Let’s get a first-class room!”
Emperor Jing thought for a while before making a decision.
This Taoyuan County is getting weirder and weirder!
A servant led the two of them upstairs with a pot of tea in his hand.
After sending them to the house, Xiao Er poured two cups of tea for the two of them courteously.
“Guest officers, please try this tea, the water in our Taoyuan Town is notoriously sweet!”
“I’m going out first. I’ll know if you pull the red string at the door if something happens.”
Pulling the rope is a bit interesting, it can be found in this palace!
Emperor Jing nodded, and the servant closed the door and came out.
“Your Majesty, let’s have a cup of tea. I haven’t eaten well on the way. I’ll get you some food and drink.”
Emperor Jing raised his hand, then picked up the teacup on the table and looked at it carefully.
The light yellow tea soup is clear to the bottom, and there are two stretched tea leaves underneath.
“This tea is also different from the capital.”
Guo Tianyang also picked up the teacup and smelled it: “Yes! It has a delicate fragrance, I will try it for Your Majesty first.”
After speaking, he took a sip.
Then he narrowed his eyes and said: “The fragrance is light and elegant, and it seems to have a medicinal fragrance, which is far better than the tea soup in the capital! The tea is good, and the water is also good! I didn’t expect tea to be drunk like this!”
Emperor Jing took a big sip directly, he was indeed a little thirsty all the way.
“Sure enough! The fragrance is pleasant! Hehe, this Taoyuan County is getting more and more interesting.”
“Your Majesty! Look at this wall! The servant didn’t pay attention just now! His wall is pasted with white cloth! No wonder it looks so clean and tidy.”
Emperor Jing touched the position of the wall curiously, and touched a piece of rough texture, which should be made of white linen.
But the visual looks very refreshing.
Guo Tianyang walked to other rooms, and soon there was a scream from inside the room!
“Ah! Your Majesty! There is a well in this house!”
What! ? Have a well? Where is the well on the second floor! ?
Emperor Jing quickly walked over.
I saw Guo Tianyang lying on a ceramic toilet and marveling at the water inside.
There really is a well! Emperor Jing was shocked.
Guo Tianyang knocked on the toilet and yelled strangely: “It is still made of porcelain! Such a huge one must be difficult to fire, and it would be too extravagant to make a wellhead!”
“Besides, the shape of this well is very strange. Why don’t you ask Xiaoer to ask, this store is really ingenious, and even moved the well into the house, but why is the mouth of the well so small?”
After Guo Tianyang finished speaking, he picked up a handful of water from the toilet and drank it.
He exclaimed in admiration: “Sure enough, it’s sweet and sweet! Good water! Really good water!”
“Your Majesty, you should try it too! I’ll call Xiao Er!”
After speaking, Guo Tianyang ran to the door and pulled the red rope, and Xiao Er came up after a while.
Guo Tianyang took him to the toilet and pointed to the “well mouth” and said, “Xiao Er! Why is there a well here!?”
The young man has obviously seen this scene a lot, and he explained skillfully: “My lords, this is not a well, but a toilet, also known as a toilet.”
Guo Tianyang was struck by lightning! Guilty glanced at Emperor Jing, but he got a murderous look.
Guo Tiannuo pulled his face, blushed and said, “How can this toilet be placed in the house! Why is the latrine indoors!”
Emperor Jing also had a strange expression, fortunately he didn’t drink just now, otherwise where would the emperor’s face be put in the future!
Xiaoer continued to explain: “Guest officer, you don’t know, many new-style inns in Taoyuan County are like this.”
“This toilet is very convenient. You can see that there is a rope on it connected to the water tank. When the toilet is finished, you can pull the rope and the dirt will be flushed away.”
Guo Tianyang suppressed the nausea in his heart: “Where is the water tank?”
“You see a huge water tower is specially erected next to many inns, and someone replenishes the water every morning. As for the water tank in your house, it is hidden on the ceiling.”
Emperor Jing nodded thoughtfully. When he came just now, he was still wondering. Many buildings in this city have a large bucket standing alone on a high shelf, and he doesn’t know what it is for.
It turned out to be a water tower specially used to hold water.
Guo Tianyang’s disgusting energy became more and more upward, and finally he couldn’t hold it back.
Lie down on the toilet and gulped down.
Xiao Er excitedly said: “Yes! Yes! Many people vomit like this after drinking too much!”
After Guo Tianyang vomited, he got up and glanced at Xiaoer bitterly.
Xiaoer stepped forward and stretched out his hand to pull the rope, a stream of water rushed down, flushing the toilet clean again.
The unpleasant smell just after drinking has also disappeared.
Emperor Jing looked in amazement!
Then he asked curiously, “Where did all this filth go?”
