it was once sunny


Qingdao, Northern China

To remind myself that at one point this summer it was sunny I'm posting some pictures of the beach at Qingdao from May. Some classic Chinese seaside sights here;
  • no sunbathing instead there's umbrellas and full clothing
    (women prefer pale skin to tanned)
  • only men in the sea
  • and no one's actually swimming, mostly there's only degrees of paddling


And you are never far from a bike, even at sea. Above, bike-pedaloes.

But don't despair if you're planning a global ad campaign about beaches - some things at the seaside are the same all over the world, like kitschy shell-based ornaments:

Hi Sarah,

I work at Mother with Dylan Williams who I think has picked your brains on China before, and there's some middle-kingdom related questions that I'd like to ask you.

If you get a moment could you drop me your contact details to edw@motherlondon.com

Cheers, and I hope to speak to you soon.

Ed

Just questioning if eBay permits you to market [url=http://www.ticketchoice.com.au]concert tickets[/url] on the web? Do you know if you'll find any restrictions based on what country you are in?

My parents have just called me and asked if i could "get rid" of their two tickets to some concert as they wont have the ability to make it due to yet another family event.

Besides asking buddies etc, i thought ebay would be a good location to sell them.

But whats ebay's policy on promoting tickets? Ive heard alot about it on the news but ive forgotten what happened.

and if it matters, the concert is within this coming month

Thanks in advance for the advice.
