The hotel is right by the beach, but I don't have the ocean view. I'll review the hotel later. I ate dinner in the hotel restaurant after tearing myself away from the Internet- HuffPo and Countdown. Some seafood and Chinese cabbage later, it was time for more Internet.
Today was the reason why I came to Qingdao- to tour the Tsing Tao brewery. I was on my own, no tour but signs were in English. At the end, I got a free glass of raw beer. It did throw me for a loop like in Plzen, but it was good. But I also had significantly more in Plzen too... Lunch was a restaurant on the street. I picked out a crab and what looked like small clams, and a pitcher of beer. I had asked for a small beer... I got a pitcher. Oh boy. But the food was good.
From there, back to the hotel for a nap, then to take a walk to the beach and the pier. The wind, the waves- and the chatter of Chinese. Then to hike up to a Catholic Church I couldn't enter... then back to the hotel for some Daily Show, Colbert Report and Countdown.
