The Elusive Tunnel
Desk-bound day, them took a short flight to the port city of Qingdao, famous for its old German architecture and Tsingtao beer. Met at the airport by two nice people from Pilot Music who are organizing a rock festival here this weekend. It's actually across the bay in a 'new development zone' called Huangdao, reached by a much-heralded 5-mile tunnel which opened last year. But do you think our driver could find it? In the end he had to flag down a taxi and then follow him. So our car journey ended up taking longer than the flight.
