... on. The entrances where camouflaged to look like natural holes. But you do not go into the tunnels, you go through the forest and their system is explained and viewed with dug outs. On the way home we got a view of the 5 o'clock traffic which is totally amazing. 10 Million people live in the city and they have 6 Million scooters. It seems they were all out at once. Not only one person on the scooter, but everything is transported on them ...children , furniture, dogs ..a family.. ...

Narrow lanes, tropical trees and a warm climate mean lazy days wandering.

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.

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.
