3,5 h later we checked in to the hotel in Xiamen with nice soft beds and pillows. This is a rarety in China. They mostly sleep on planks and hard pillows :-)
... Tulou avec son mari, du coup on a pu voir la vie dans un Tulou. Ils étaient vraiment gentils. Bon par contre j'ai rien compris de ce qui se disait mais c'était quand même une super expérience. Je n'aurais jamais pu faire ça si j'avais été toute seule.
JOUR 2: J'ai eu l'impression d'être debout avant tout le monde. Et pourtant je ne me suis pas levée de bonne heure. J'ai un peu trainé et j'allais jeter l'éponge et partir toute seule quand les gens ...
