... monks are walking around and they live right next to the temple in really pretty apartments with gardens. Pretty and colourful roof designs on the temple too. I walked up the surrounding hills - kind of going off the path a bit, I found a cave full of small statues of Buddhist deities. It was so beautiful, maybe the monks come here to pray in solitude? Maybe the statues are old ones that have been discarded (some were a bit broken)? Who knows. Walking further up, I got ...
... number of pianos on it. There is an amazing piano museum, which I am sure Nick's father would love. I wasn't allowed to take photos, but it was a fantastic collection. There was even a corner piano. I imagine you would have to cross your hands over to play 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.
