... Beverley from the Sunshine Coast and Rob and Beverly (yes another one) from Ryde in Sydney. It turned out the two Beverleys had relations in common in Rockhampton – unknown to both of them !! So – old home week !!
Daniel Mallari made a return to the stage tonight and was well received again. Very enjoyable performance.
Tired from our shore travels today so just back to the cabin after the show for a movie / ...
... views of Xiamen and the temple below. As it got dark, I explored Xiamen University.

After dinner, there was a production show so we all went to see it, but it had already started but what we saw was good.
