a really bad tour-organisation
It is very hard to discuss with chinese people, they will always make sure not to "loose their face". We had been in Qingdao in wintertime and so it became totally dark already at 05.30pm. Our ship arrived at 3.30,then we had some customs-formalities and our organized bustour of Tsingdao started at 4.00 with the brewery, ALTHOUGH it was stated in all announcements that the brewery would be done at the end of the tour.
There was no way to persuade them and they even told us that the brewery-museum would be closed at 06.00pm so this is our only way to see it and most people of our group gave up insisting. In the evening we found out that half of the buses saw the city in daylight and the brewery in the dark, and the other half went to the brewery first because it was easier that way for the tour-organisation.
And now you know why some of my pics are so dark !
And another problem with this bus-company was that the bus-windows did not get dry and they did not have an aircondition or any other means to solve this problem, see my last pic !
