Friday 11 Sep 15 – Xiamen
Arrived in Xiamen (~Zowmin) right on time at 7am to a rather smoggy morning – but fine. Had to get moving early as we had to be ready to leave the ship for our tour of Xiamen at 7am, so breakfast was at 6am and a 5:30am wakeup. The port is about 2 hours up a river estuary and this is done at slow speed, particularly given the size of the ship.
The bus trip to arrive at our tour ...
... in a hurry - kid's bikes were still propped up against the wall, kitchen pots and pans on the stove, clothes still hanging up to dry. I took the opportunity to see the upstairs of a tulou, and climbed up the wooden stairs (in hindsight probably not the best idea climbing up wooden stairs and walking on wooden floorboards that aren't being maintained). All of the upstairs rooms were still locked but looking through the windows I saw posters on the walls, and blankets still ...

Once at the airport, we found our flight was delayed, and so we waited. And waited. No information, irate ...
We had a full day on the South China Sea traveling north from Hong Kong to the heart of new China, first stop Xiamen.
It was a highly memorable journey as the South China seas were rocking and rolling, and the wind was howling. One staff member told us it was the roughest he had seen in his 6 months on the ship. We did okay until Gillian took an abs class, and found that rolling on the floor of a boat in rough seas is indeed ill advised. Fortunately ...
... for a bit and as we were heading back to the bus, we saw little sand crabs so we squatted and watched them move around, the beach here has a fair amount of rubbish lying near the waters edge, I wouldn't liked to had swum here! Near the exit to where we had to meet, we bought a sugar donut thing but it wasn't soft, it was like a chorro stick but harder. Back on the bus and this time heading for the pedestrian shopping street, yahoo!! We had 1 hour and 10 minutes ...
