About Gongping Road and Jimu Hill
Gongping Road, on the northeastern side of Jimu Hill, is 491.8 meters long and 2 to 5 meters wide. It is connected with Yongchun Road in the east and Neicuoao Road in the west. In the early time, it was call Baoshun Lane, because a senior manager of Dent & Co. lived there and Dent was translated as Baoshun in Chinese. It changed to its present name of Gongping Road in the 1940s. It is our favourite road in Gulangyu though often neglected by most tourists on the islet. Less than 500 meters long and away from the most tourists, it has carried with it the true life of people of Gulangyu. A witness to the history of Gulangyu, the road gives a feeling characteristic of Gulangyu with its buildings of different foreign architectural styles as well as of traditional Chinese architectural appeal.
About our pet cat and German shepherd dog
Longlong is a five-year old long-haired German shepherd dog. Because of the fine breeding and training he has received since its infancy, this otherwise fierce dog has become very meekly and docile. His happiest hours of the day is taking a walk when the sun is setting on the quiet Gongping Road or along the Meihua beach. Occasionally we take him to climb Jimu Hill to enjoy the breeze. Great time for both the walker and Longlong.
Xx used to be a homeless cat and had, according to our neighbor, made our courtyard his home for quite a few years before our reconstruction. When the mansion was under reconstruction, he disappeared and was back to his old life style. As soon as the reconstruction was completed, he came back and of course we welcome his return. Having been a host for the mansion for a long time, he takes it for granted that he can do whatever he likes in the courtyard and it is no surprising to see him very bossy lying in a chair deep in sleep.
