Photographer's Note

'Gulangyu' is pronounced locally as 'goo_lang_yee'. Why, I don't know. It's the old colonial enclave, on an island off the coast of the large town of Xiamen, which was 1 of 4 concession treaty ports open to trade after the opium wars in the 19th century.

There are no cars on the island, which makes walking around the town a delight.
