“They were as two birds in flight, Their paired wings soaring, Using cinnabar ink they’d write their vows, I’ll never forget you.”

 —Ruan Ji

Born in 210 in the Henan Province in China, Ruan Ji was an eccentric Chinese poet and most renowned member of the Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove, a group of third-century poets and philosophers who sought refuge from worldly pressures in a life of drinking and verse making. His poetry is full of melancholy and has been praised for its profound view of a difficult time. His best-known collection is "Yonghuai shi" (Songs of My Heart) where he applies his brush to a homosexual theme.

This beautiful room at our lodging in Provincetown is clean and crisp in classic gray and white, and has just been renovated.  The king-sized four-poster bed boasts luxurious fabrics and is the perfect place to rest after a day exploring all Provincetown has to offer. The outside patio overlooks our elegant Asian garden and is a perfect place to enjoy breakfast on a beautiful Cape Cod summer morning.

Writer Bio

“I am animated to a state of pity and fear, I stepped off the train, purged.”

 —R. Raj Rao

For years, Dr. R. Raj Rao has been the public face of gay Indian literature. The author of "Slide Show" and his searing collection of short stories, "One Day I Locked My Flat in Soul City" (1995), contains several angst-ridden gay-themed pieces. In 1996, six of Rao's poems from his still-in-progress "BomGay" were filmed as India's first gay film. Rao released his first novel, "The Boyfriend", which was widely publicized as India's first gay novel in English. It is bleak, hard-hitting and darkly funny.
