... two days off the ship, to stay over night on a Junk in Ha Long Bay, (meaning descending dragon) Ha Long Bay is one of the world's outstanding natural wonders. The temperature is a little cooler, but the humidity still 102% The drive into our mooring spot is already breath taking. The ship is anchored in Ha Long Bay at noon and we get tendered to our Junk. The Sea is calm and the Junk is taking off at once. There is one stop to a beautiful cave which turned out to be a nightmare ...
... big things, little things and long things. Don't ask me! I haven't yet found pictures of some of them on the Internet in order to work out what we have eaten. Most have been delicious. Only one was tasteless and had the texture of rubber. We found a beautiful little beach, and so spent a while lying on the sand. Good white sand.

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 then wandered back to the hotel and had afternoon tea sitting up in the restaurant area overlooking the harbour and Gulangyu Island, unfortunately not warm or nice enough to sit outside.
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.
