Hello from Harbin!

Off on sping break for the Labor Day Holiday! Got a Five day break so I’m headed to Japan! Haven’t been there since 2013 so I’m super psyched! 😃

Tongli Bridges

Some ancient #bridges on the waterways of #Tongli in Southern #China.

Wine around the World

I think I should try all of these! The bottles are too cute. You can be an #international #wine taster in one place 😂😋🍷

Cool Dude!

Rocking the bunny ears! ❤️😎

#Summer Treats! Lemon Qi. . .


Lemon 7-up is absolutely delicious! They call it ningmengqi or 柠檬七.

柠檬 (lemon) + 七 (7). It’s basically 7-up with squeezed lemon in it.  Delicious!

I usually order it 多多冰 (duo duo bing).  多means more/extra.  In Chinese, saying something twice makes it stronger – so 多多 means ‘a lot extra’.  冰 means ‘ice’. 

So I get 柠檬七多多冰 (ningmenqi duoduobing) or lemon 7-up with lots of ice. It’s possible I’m supposed to say the Ice first- my grammar isn’t that good. 😂 But they understand me! It cost me 7¥ or about 1$.  

If you visit #China. you should try it. Very Good and super refreshing!

0_0 Scary Marble Mountain Slide

Climb Liaojieling Mountain in Henan, and you get the opportunity to check out this sweet marble slide!  It goes about 3 city blocks down and immediately dead ends on a 2ft platform leading to a major 20 ft+ drop off. The only thing between you and the fall is a unreliable large net.  FUN!  😛  It was tons of fun actually, pretty awesome!

Sorry for the bad quality, I had to use my bad camera for this so it’s just fun 🙂
