Justin and I ran a couple of routes around the Xiamen University Campus. The grounds were stunning, and I found myself wishing that we lived in this city so that we could take in this beautiful place everyday.
What great motivation to keep running!!!
In the centre of the university campus is a lake. We ran the paths around the lake, and found bridges and an island with bronze life-sized statues. From the lake we could see the modern architecture of the new dormitory buildings as well as the original style dormitory buildings on the opposite side.
Behind the older dormitory buildings we found a road leading up the mountain. There were many hiking trails leading up and over the mountain to a botanical garden on the other side. We didn’t go all the way, however we stopped at a second lake to take a breather.
We rested here and took in the peaceful surroundings.
The main entrance road to the university is lined with palm trees.
Another great scenic run!! 🙂
