... I felt a bit bad for intruding on their peaceful morning but after all they do depend on the tourism to be able to still live like this, and a simple nod and a 'Zaoshang hao' from me seemed to make them happy. So I wondered around the buildings and farmlands here for a while, and got a good view of the area from a nearby hill. Then had some tasty lunch, and maybe my Mandarin pronunciations are still a bit off because what I ordered was not what I got, but it was ...
... 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. The noise was unbelievable. There was a show starting at 9.30, and about ten minutes beforehand, every bird seemed to start warming up its vocal chords. There was the usual revolting show of trained birds doing ridiculous things like riding a bike. The only funny one was the cockatoo playing the piano. ...
... here was quite pretty, lots of light on all the buildings and along the harbour, many ships here as Xiamen is a major shipping port between Taiwan an Xiamem.

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.
