I headed to Sanya for three reasons. The first, to go surfing. The second, to relax on the beach in the sun when not surfing. The third to eat a shit load of fresh tropical fruits. Mission accomplished. Though I didn't get to surf much as the previous few days typhoon had brought in swell upcoming to it, after I got there the swell was pretty much all but gone. Bummer. I did manage to get a lovely sunburn after about only 20 min in the sun though, another mission accomplished. And it was nearly impossible to not find luscious beautiful tropical fruit, it was very where. I ate a ton of mangosteens, rambutans, star fruits, and some of the best tasting mangoes I've ever had.
Most of the pictures below are from an outing to Tianya Haijiao (End of the Earth and the Corner of the Sea) China's south-most point of land area. Some of the rocks here are very famous to Chinese people. Tanja took all those photos which is why you'll see more of the hero of this blog in them.
The Rocks of Sun and Moon (日月石) are two boulders near hundreds of other uniquely shaped rocks. Here the "Sun" refers to "husband" and the "Moon" refers to "wife". Looking from the distance, they resemble a couple entwined to each other but they are in fact separate rock.
movie time! we went to see a movie in Sanya. We were told this one had english subtitles and it didn't. Luckily they had another movie that did. Unfortunately, the other movie wasn't in the super lush and comfy theatre that you see here.
