Chinese-isms: Part 2

Sometimes, it may be hard to remember that we live in China.
What with all my Starbucks & eating awesome Western food talk.
Granted, we do live in one of the "most livable cities in China," said someone. 
Maybe Lonely Planet.
Maybe the news.
I don't know.
Someone said that and it's true.
Qingdao is beautiful, relaxed and modern.
It rocks.

But, I assure you, we are still in China and
I have more pictures this week to prove it to you. 

In case you missed last weeks: Chinese-isms:Part 1
A hole in the road
Why use an orange construction cone when you could just use a tree branch?
This picture doesn't really have a sky line "filled" with cranes, but trust me there are plenty of every growing, China skylines filled with cranes. 
Before the 2008 Olympics in Beijing I heard a statistic that China had 1/3 of the entire world's cranes.

And once again, I'll end this Chinese-ism post with how beautiful China is, as well. 
Enjoy your Weekend!!!

Count down lights would be so great! Are there less traffics accidents that way? My son, who was looking over my shoulder, just said, "That chicken made a mess on that table." 5-year old wisdom... :)
