Xiamen…said Ji-men

Nobody had/has heard of this city  but …..it is another huge city.  3+million…skyscrapers galore.  A few of us North Americans and I mean a few….maybe 6, took the ferry to the island of Gulangyu.  There are no automobiles allowed….so totally quiet, clean, pedestrian friendly, nice white sandy beaches, rock out-croppings, old colonial type buildings and a maze of shopping streets that we had to keep showing a picture I took of the map of the island….to show people where we wanted to go cuz we sure couldn’t communicate language wise.  Hardly anyone spoke English.  That wasn’t very good for us but I guess you have to expect this.  Apparently it is a vacation destination for Chinese although it was cold…..52 F. Brrrrrr.
