There’s no minute like the last one.
So as time closes on me here in Qingdao I’m trying to tie up loose ends and do the things I planned on doing, but never had the time to. So for those of you that know me, that means buying gifts, taking pictures, packing and eating bugs.
Yes the last one is real.
So I’ve had a great time here, but I’ve totally forgot to do a few things while I’ve been here. I guess I just thought sleep or working on my online history class were more important. Boy I was wrong. I need a few more pictures than what I have, and I’ve totally forgot to buy a few things for family members and such.
Anyways, this last minute stuff is making me feel way too busy, but it’s OK it just makes me realize how many people I have back in the U.S. who care about me, and how many people I want to share this part of my life to through something as small as a little trinket from China.
So I’ve got a few things left to do like visit the beach one last time and buy a few Chinese Red Bull, but it’s going to be a fun next couple of days before I leave with final dinner’s and taking photos with people that I have known for only a short amount of time.
Another “travel channel”-esk thing I have left is to eat some odd, but delicious street food. Those of you that feel the same way I do understand me. So here’s a few links to some videos of me consuming a few more creatures. (locusts, grasshoppers, scorpions again) I couldn’t get myself to eat the grub-worms, maybe another trip.
I didn’t put the video of me eating sea urchin because I’m pretty sure I ate some rocks or something (it also was not my favorite thing I’ve ever eaten). I might try those one more time, but not from a street vendor. Check out some of my other photos of Xi’an and such on Flickr if you’re feeling fancy and bored on this lovely Saturday.
Enjoy here a few photos from the day and I’ll be talking to you soon as I finish out my time here in Qingdao.
