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! πŸ˜ƒ

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 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‹πŸ·

Cool Dude!

Rocking the bunny ears! ❀️😎

#Summer Treats! Lemon Qi. . .


Lemon 7-up is absolutely delicious! They call it ningmengqi or 柠ζͺ¬δΈƒ.

柠ζͺ¬ (lemon) + δΈƒ (7). It’s basically 7-up with squeezed lemon in it.  Delicious!

I usually order it ε€šε€šε†° (duo duo bing).  ε€šmeans more/extra.  In Chinese, saying something twice makes it stronger – so 倚倚 means ‘a lot extra’.  ε†° means ‘ice’. 

So I get 柠ζͺ¬δΈƒε€šε€šε†° (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. πŸ˜‚ But they understand me! It cost me 7οΏ₯ or about 1$.  

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