Amo, Amas, Amoy!

Xiamen, also known as Amoy, is one of the two main cities we will visit during the Horner Exchange. As an important port for centuries, including one of the first to trade with the West, and as a winner of environmental and urban planning awards, Xiamen has a fascinating story that I'm looking forward to learning more about.

For those playing along at home, today I've been exploring this quirky website: Amoy Magic

Part personal travelogue, part book promotion, part community report, it reminds me of what people (myself included) with a handful of html used to do before Facebook.
