This morning we woke up at our hotel, quickly ate breakfast and set off to the Nanputuo temple, the most famous Buddhist temple in Xiamen. There we played the "Gogame" where students in their groups used our phones to complete different challenges. Some of these challenges were educational in nature, and some of them were just fun, for example requiring students to take a certain style of picture or identify things on a short hike. Each challenge scores points for the teams. We will announce the winner and show some of the media for them tomorrow. 

We then ate at a local vegetarian buffet and set out for the Hongkeng Tulou cluster. It was a 3 hour bus journey through beautiful countryside. 

Once we arrived, we had an amazing Hakka dinner prepared for us by the Fuyulou Tulou staff. Many of the students enjoyed these dishes the best, but the fresh taro was still a hard sell. 

After dinner we had an introduction to Tulou life and history from the owner of Fuyulou. His family build the Tulou six generations ago as a fortress to protect themselves and they still live there today. The students were very engaged with him and they asked him a lot of great questions. 

Tonight they're enjoying a goodnight sleep in their toulou rooms.
