On the weekend of November 21, 22, and 23rd, I was invited by one of my students, Albert (Mao You Jun) to visit his brother in Xiamen. Having heard about this beautiful city from many people (even friends in Canada), I was excited about the opportunity to visit. I was not disappointed!!
Albert and I caught the bus in downtown Fuzhou at 1:00 p.m.. The bus drove through some lovely countryside and small towns and cities. We arrived in Xiamen at around 4:30 p.m. We wandered around for awhile and then met up with Albert's brother, Alex (Mao You Li). Alex lives in a very modern apartment on the outskirts of Xiamen. His balcony overlooks a large market garden area. Here are some photos taken from his balcony.
