Day 7: Fun nights
Definitely had a great time last night. A girl we met at qbar named Toni invited us out to dinner and bar hopping. It was really fun. And the coolest thing about it was that with dinner, drinks, the 4 or 5 cabs we caught, it was all pretty cheap. I think I spent about 20-25 USD that night on everything. Not to mention Toni was very hospitable. She bought us a couple drinks and appetizers.
But really though, this morning was a total headache. Watch what you consume in China.
At 12 we are going to the broadband company to finally stop living like pilgrims. We are also expecting the plumbers to come… but I don’t know when.
And tonight Toni invited us to her place for Mexican food. Definitely excited for that. Toni and her friends are really fun and I’m really looking forward to having American friends while I’m in Qingdao.
Ok. Time to start my day. Peace
Day 6: Is this real life?
More orientation. It’s really repetitive. Kinda stressful. We have a test next week to see if we know everything.
Still don’t have internet. Our water sucks. And we also just realized that we don’t have hot water. Hot. Water.
i can’t shower.
Day 5: What happen to day 4?
May 16th, 2013 (this is not going up on May 16th because we don’t have WiFi in the apartment right now.)
What happen to day 4?
Lets just say you can find me at the qbar for ladies night.
Yesterday was pretty much the same as day 3 with Orientation, except for the fact that someone working at the front of the house spoke to me in a slightly harsh way and I took it to heart. Good old sensitive Hannah. I don’t think I would have minded it as much if I weren’t so jetlagged. But really, being this tired is almost like being on your period.
After orientation our HR director took us to get cell phones. The phone is a pretty old Android. It’s pretty small and pathetic, but it’ll get the job done.
There’s one man named Michael Angelo and another named Alfredo in the Hotel. Both of them are hot.
Today we had a small orientation and we moved into our apartment. The apartments are pretty safe and clean, except for the fact that the bathrooms smell like sewage. The security here is pretty secure and I’m happy with all the amenities inside, like the tv and the furniture.
Some other things that are wrong about this place: there’s little details about this place that are kinda gross, like Suzanne’s towels had hair on them and the sink in my bathroom won’t drain properly. There’s also a leak in Suzanne’s sink drain. We don’t have an oven, which ruins our steak and cookie plans. And we’re missing some essential things that we will pick up probably on Saturday (detergent, toilet paper, soap, etc.). WE ALSO DON’T HAVE WIFI L
Suzanne had our first eating out experience. We went to a place called Pizza loves Donburi. Not good at all. The menu’s English really tried… but it just doesn’t work. It was definitely a “I see what you did there” moment. I had Curry over donkatsu and rice while Suzanne had a Margarita pizza. We cleverly asked for no green onion. But when the pizza came it had lettuce on it. So weird. My curry was blah. I miss my mommy’s food. And I want a burger. And I want M.A. and Alf.
Tomorrow night we’re going out with a group of ex-pats we met at qbar. I’m super excited to make new friends and get familiar with Qingdao.
