A cave, oh so comfortable, that this Chinese couple once came and never moved out, reports the People's Daily Online.
Liang Zifu, 81, and his wife Li Suying, 77, have been living in a cave near Nanchong city in southwest China's Sichuan province, for the past 54 years. They even raised their four children here.
The couple couldn't afford building a house for themselves when they got married, hence they found shelter in the cave. It now has three bedrooms, one kitchen, a living room and even a pigsty. The cave house is cooler in summer and warmer in winters than outside.
According to People's Daily Online, local authorities have urged the couple to move out for a better place, but they refused.
