I flew into Shanghai, and spent one night at an airport hotel to get over jet lag. The next morning I caught a flight to Qingdao where Sam and Daisy live. They own a home on the 13th floor of a highrise building.
In this series of scanned in scrap-book pages, you can see a bit of Qingdao. You can see other parts I have written about, starting here. Their home looks out on Mt. Laoshan, and that is a school at the bottom of the mountain view photo. They don’t own a car, cabs are plentiful and inexpensive. You will meet their two dogs, the big shaggy one is GuaiGuai and the other is Gino. They are lively!
Qingdao is the home brewery for Tsingtao beer. Qingdao and Tsingtao are homophones, words that sound the same (pronounced as Chin Dow), but are spelled and have different meanings.
