After one month enjoying the spicy Sichuanese food in Chengdu and having a great time with the Chengdu office team, I had to say goodbye to our lovely interns, whom I miss a lot. So last week I moved to Qingdao, China’s most liveable city, birthplace of the most famous Tsingdao-Beer. My arrival was pretty chaotic, including me breaking the key of our apartment, but our InternChina staff here is just as nice as ours in Chengdu and our Qingdao-master Leo helped me out together with my two roommates. Qingdao is a beautiful city, we can even see the sea from the window of our office. It is great to by the sea at night. Our InternChina team here is really awesome and helped me to overcome the loss of my Chengdu friends. Starting with the first Thursday dinner I had in Qingdao – Sichuanese Restaurant. With traditional spicy Sichuanese food like Mapo-Tofu they helped me to cure my homesickness from Chengdu. We have also lots of events going on in Qingdao.

On my first weekend here, we had a trip to Fushan Mt. on Saturday. Apparently Emeishan before was not enough, so the challenge continues. After almost an hour hiking through the forest around Fushan, we finally reached the wall we wanted to climb – and did! It was really exciting, but also very hard. Many of us who came back down from that steep wall claimed that we often considered giving up, but thanks to the cheering from our coach and other interns who waited down there, almost everyone who tried also succeeded. The view on top of it was totally worth it. On the next day we all had sore muscles, which lasted for the following couple days. But if we ever get a chance to do it again, we would!
