What can I say… another belated entry backdated so the blog maintains it’s chronology.
After Tai’an I took an eight hour train, on a standing ticket, across Shandong province to the idyllic port city of Qingdao—famous for it’s German brewery, built when the city was a German concession.
When you can buy pints of brewery fresh, icy-cold beer on the beach for 4 kuai (AU$0.66) it’s no wonder that I had a nap and woke an hour later with terrible sunburn across my torso and upper arms
Thankfully my hotel room had super efficient air-con, so I spent my last couple of days lying naked, flat on my back, rubbing moisturiser into my body, and smoking pot and popping aspirin to deal with the pain.
Check out the Qingdao photo gallery.
