When there are no more tourists on Gulangyu Island

2020-07-01

The day before yesterday, I took the opportunity to go to Gulangyu Island.


Most of the restaurants on Dragon Head Road are still not open. The long queues of Lin's patties, Turkish ice cream and small Mago's toast have all disappeared, and the Internet sensation Zhang San crazy has also closed its doors.


Walking on the road, it seems that Gulangyu Island is all your own.

Cruise ships are still frequent between the Xiamen and Guodu Straits, and the Twin Towers tower like clouds, reaching into the clouds. The island is dotted with red-roofed houses and turquoise branches. The island is dotted with red-roofed houses, covered with turquoise branches, and the beach at the foot of the hill is dotted with tourists. In chase and play. It's much windier at the top of the hill and an otherwise gloomy day suddenly reveals a ray of sunshine in the afternoon. Sitting on top of a quiet mountain, with no one rushing you, the world is just sunshine, wind, sand, green trees, red roofs, sea and yourself.




After sitting at the top of the hill for over an hour down to the island's famous wormhole bookstore, the bookstore was so full of sci-fi that I didn't dare to If you walk too fast or too heavy, the sound of the wooden floor under your feet will wake up the books resting on the bookshelf. I ordered an afternoon tea and sat in the courtyard with a sign on the wall that reads "Reading - the best encounter in life". I like to sit in the bookstore, even if I am dazed all afternoon, I can all relaxed and comfortable, in the sea of books, take a sip of just Time can stop here when you make a good cup of tea. There used to be a bookstore in Xiamen that isn't there anymore, but now it's really gone, and on weekends I even take the hour-long drive to the Sitting in a shop for an hour, a cup of coffee, a person, a book, is a world.



The first time I went to Gulangyu Island was three years ago, just after I finished my internship at the university, and I came straight from Beijing by myself. I waited for over two hours at the pier in Dongdu before boarding the boat, it was summer, everyone's clothes were soaked, and we huddled together. The only smell in the air is the smell of sweat, walking on the streets of Gulangyu Island, no place is clean, the noise of the hustle and bustle of shouting drowned Gulangyu Island. The waves crashing on the beach were just a dull sound. But at that time, I was so happy that I was about to graduate, and no matter how complicated it was, it couldn't stop me from being happy.


I never thought that I would come to Xiamen after graduation, and stayed there for three years. I went to Gulangyu a few times during these years in Xiamen, but each time it was to accompany my friends. I hate the noise, it was all the same shops and food at first, I really can't tell the difference between here and Zhongshan Road across the river. Where? Because it's called "Gulangyu"?


I was walking down an alleyway when suddenly there was the sound of a piano playing, and I followed the sound, standing downstairs and refusing to leave.
