Then we hit up the art market! Sorry I should have taken pictures. Just imagine small shop after small shop of oil paintings - every kind imaginable. Matt bought this picture of Hong Kong. I can't wait to go back to there this summer.
While we were wandering we discovered a Buddhist Temple and couldn't resist taking some photos of the incredible carvings and art.
The tall brick building to the right is where they burn money. Fake money that they buy to burn.
I just thought this one was cool.
And our personal favorite - a picture of a Chinese guy riding a turtle.
We met up with some more people and saw Men in Black 3. Great humor, but I'm really not that into aliens so not my favorite.
Sunday after church we decided to go on a walk to ZhongshanLu - a pedestrian street market. I didn't take any picture of that. But I took some of Gulanyu island from the ferry terminal.
The buildings that you can vaguely see in the background of this picture are on mainland China, but still part of the city Xiamen. We live on the island part of Xiamen. The boat is a ferry to Gulanyu island - a touristy island with no cars allowed.
This is another picture of Gulanyu. I believe the domed building is the organ museum.
And walking back to our apartment Matt found a new friend.
About ten minutes after we got home it started pouring rain. So perfect timing!
