Qingdao - chapter I

a weekend outside beijing (18-19 August, 2007)

...after more than 10 months no seeing the ocean and beach (counting the 7 months i'm in china) . . . finally i sense it again!

Qingdao is a beach city in china one-hour flight southeast beijing!

it's known for it's annual beer festival!...and because it's one of the closest beaches from beijing!

it was occupied by germans during the 19th century and by japanese in the beginning of the 20th century!

Sketch map of Qingdao in 1906

the reason why i went there??? - 3 reasons:
  1. see the beach, ocean and swim on it
  2. check out the beer festival
  3. get outside beijing after 7 weeks here
present pics of the city

this is just the 1st chapter...i have so many things to tell you! (lot of curiosities and stories to share with you)!

August 18-19th weekend, 2007 . . .
