... of English. I have held so many children I have lost count, and I have posed with a toothless grinning woman well into her 90's that I had to hold her up for fear she may fall over!

... city with a youthful vibe and energy.

Today I got up early and took a ferry out to Gulangyu to beat the crowds and the heat. The island, known also as, Piano Island, has no cars or motor bikes. A very welcome change.

As ever, we recieved a very warm welcome from our Xiamen hosts, and after feeding us we were taken on a shopping trip where our pupils got a chance to meet some of their Chinese counterparts.
