Favorites from China: China Shots #6, Xiamen and Gulangyu

Xiamen, including the adjacent island of Gulangyu, is a heavenly part of southern China in Fujian Province. We visited during the Qing Ming (tomb sweeping) holiday in April 2013. Here are some photos. We had a lot of rain, but also a lot of fun. It's beautiful even when the weather isn't.
