Nice Sign

Isn’t this sign genteel? Think of the next red light you see as smiling.

Fresh Chickens

I just can’t bring myself to buy chicken this way. It is fresher, but watching the seller butcher it would be too much for me.

Buying Vegetables

In the morning it’s a good time to go out and buy some vegetables from the vendors before the day gets too hot.

It’s been 30+ degrees in Jinan.

Travel Theme: Endearing

Panda Cake

Panda Cake

This week Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack challenges bloggers to find and share photos that are endearing. I thought this cute panda cake was the ticket.

If you would like to join in this week’s travel theme (everyone’s welcome) here’s what to do:

  • Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Endearing
  • Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  • Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday.

You can see more endearing photos at Where’s My Backpack.

Not So Simple

I thought I’d share some detailed, cool children’s art (i.e. created by a child) in contrast with yesterday’s Simplify theme. There’s room in the world for both.

Travel Theme: Simplify

Rural Zhujiayu, Shandong

Rural Zhujiayu, Shandong

Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack invites bloggers to post travel photos each week. This time she’s given us “Simplify” for a theme because the first week of August is Simplify Your Life Week. Now this is more of an escape than a life-changing simplification, but a day in Zhujiayu, just outside of Jinan is an idyllic experience.

Please Change This

A colleague worked hard to convince the school to acquire some appropriate, engaging books in English for our university library.

The sad thing is the library won’t let students check out these novels. It’s a pain to return to the library each day so you can read a bit more of a novel. Hence the books go unread and the collection is a showplace rather than a circulating library.

August Theme Day: Take Out

DSC_0089

The City Daily Photo theme for August is “take-out food.” While in China there is food delivery and take out from McDonald’s, KFC, and the like, I think street food like the crabs and all above is true “Chinese take-out.”

To see other clever and cool interpretations of take-out, click here.
