A very Qingdao Christmas

While they don’t celebrate Christmas officially in China, Qingdao is a very modern city and loads of retail shops were getting in on the act. There are constant reminders that December 25th is coming, and Welm was given the day off from her work (though other foreigners she knows were not so lucky). Our Qingdao “Christmas” was hardly traditional, but a memorable day anyway:

waking up really late; watching The Producers on DVD; an excellent late lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant; taking a long walk along the very modern waterfront in the east of the city (Qingdao is beautiful in parts, but it’s also so modern/generic that some areas could be mistaken for any western city), a tandem treatment of one hour foot massage followed by one hour full body massage, Chinese-style; then watching The Dark Knight while eating possibly the best pizza I’ve ever tasted.

Merry Christmas, y’all

    I would have thought Qingdao did good pizza….Not. Spag bol maybe but not pizza šŸ™‚

  2. Damo, all in all not a bad way to spend a Christmas at all! Glad you had a nice one.
