Qingdao Has Many Faces
"Two Years in Qingdao"
I've been living in Qingdao for the past two years, and I've given much thought to settling in this beautiful seaside city. If I'd been able to find a better teaching situation, I would have.
There's the beautiful seaside and lovely beaches, lots of places to drink coffee outside in the summer and nearby Mt. Laoshan to climb. I highly recommend going shopping at the pedestrian mall in TaiDong.
I really have loved walking along the sea here.
"Visiting a Teahouse"
My young university friend from Urumuqi, Alice, visited a teahouse with me and we had a lovely time drinking Quan Yin tea and taking photos of each other.
