Early Morning in Jimei

Early morning the roads are washed, there are very few people and even fewer cars, and the air is cool. 

One has some time to enjoy walking around Jimei.

October Thursday in Jimei

It’s been a while since my last post on this blog. I’ve been busy and have not had much time to enjoy taking photos of what I see in Jimei. 

But today has been really nice. I walked to work and thought the sky was so blue, the air was cool. Just a beautiful day. I’d like to share this with you. 








Hong Shu Geng Qiao, Yindou Road

It’s a cloudy day. After saying goodbye to Eli at his school, I walked over to my friend’s place for coffee and a chitchat. It was a nice short walk along Yindou Road, and I stopped to take pictures. The groundskeeper gave me a lovely smile when she saw me taking pictures of the flowers, and asked me if I thought they were beautiful. I told her they were lovely and showed her the photos. She went “aahhh” and looked quite happy.

Beautiful flowers, a smile from a stranger, coffee and a nice, relaxing talk with a good friend. It’s a beautiful Monday.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

More Flowers on JMU Campus

After being away for 7 weeks, I am happy to be back in Jimei and to have my morning walks to the campus again. Walking to work in the morning when it’s quiet and cool is one of the most relaxing times in my life, and I missed it so bad while I was away.

These are the first photos I took since coming back. I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Have a lovely weekend!
