... hottest part of the day and I reckon the residents here were napping or hiding in the shade. I still loved having a peek in all the tulous; despite the fact that they were all similar architecturally and the layout was also similar, they each had a different character. Through some overgrown weeds, I came across an abandoned tulou. It was CREEPY! There was a thick layer of moss across the floor and cobwebs and dust everywhere, but it looked like the people who lived there ...
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.

Today we as per usual, got up and pampered ourselves then headed to get breakfast once again, catching up with people we've met along the way. Quite a few people were going on the same tour as ours so there was lots of buses heading out. Today we are doing The Essence of Xiamem, which takes us to a temple, a beach Buddah ( and I don't mean us on the beach!!) then to a pedestrian shopping mall.

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.
