... views of Xiamen and the temple below. As it got dark, I explored Xiamen University. Couldn't see much of a difference between it and universities in England, but it was a pretty walk around the lake. For dinner I tried the Xiamen speciality which is basically sandworms in jelly. Wasn't keen on the jelly but the worms were OK - didn't taste of much but you could kind of tell they were good for you... weird.

We have just had three wonderful days on the island of Gulangyu, near Xiamen in Fujian Province. It is Easter weekend at home, and in China it is Qing Ming Jie, Tomb Sweeping Day, where families return to their hometowns if they can, clean the family grave sites, pray and leave offerings of food, fruit and flowers.

Had a lazy day today staying around the Hotel Indigo. We walked down Zhongshan Lu and had lunch at Aijsen Ramen, one of our favourite Japanese restaurant chains.

We took a 30 minute taxi ride out to the Jimei Educational Village, a suburb of Xiamen with a lovely university campus and more colonial buildings.
Came back to the harbour area of Xiamen and wandered down Zhonghsan Lu Walking Street and then took a detour through little market areas. Met a lovely Chinese girl and her brother at the Church, where a Chinese Christian wedding ceremony was just about to begin.
