... br> I wanted to try and find another cluster but there wasn't any form of transportation around - the roads were so quiet here, so I just started walking along the road and hoped I'd come across something. Eventually a motorbike came along - I've started to get a bit afraid of motorbikes here but I was out of water, it was hot, and there was nothing else around, so I didn't really have a choice! We whizzed along the beautiful rolling hills of the Fujian countryside and ...
... have been lovely to have someone playing, or music on a sound system. Nup. An aviary had the biggest gathering of peacocks I've ever seen, as well as pelicans, cockatoos and others.

... wander around by ourselves, we decided to split up and go our own ways shopping, again, so many shops. so many people!! We bought only a few items here, had no lunch here but when we met up, we had a sundae from McDonalds !! .
Time was up, head count done once again, our group all here, unlike some groups that were missing people!! Back through customs, back through check in and yes, straight to the bar!! After a full on day, we needed it!
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.
