When we travel internationally, the first full day after arrival is labelled 'recovery' day so that we can be ready for performing the following day. Casey of course had an itinerary of the highlights of Fujian all planned and led us off on an array of pagodas, restored Ming Dynasty streets and snack stands by way of the hustle and bustle and construction characteristic of all Chinese cities. A highlight of the day was the magnificent house of a prominent citizen of the Ming and Qing dynasties consisting of four buildings and garden creating a haven of tranquillity ( except for the sound of jackhammers.) Beautiful day too. So far we're doing pretty well after the lengthy trip - it probably helped that when we finally arrived in Fujian it was bedtime.. but tomorrow is, of course, another day.
