"I went everywhere today"
Day 9 people. Todays probably been the craziest day yet. You see i have this mug back home that i got from starbucks and it tries to be all cool and hip and on the side of it its like "I went everywhere today" and whenever i see it im like man thats just impossible. Why even say something so stupid. Well. Today it finally happened. (Or at least it happened the most it ever will happen) It started off with a nice toast and scrambled egg breakfast. With coffee! Very delightful. Then we made our way to the Window of the World. Which is a theme park that has miniature versions of all the main tourist attractions in the world such as the eiffle tower or the leaning tower of pisa or the sydney opera house. On our way there we took yet another walk through a cool garden. This garden was more fun the expected. More walking and training ensued and we finally made it. Window of the World. Thats pretty much what the last week had been building up to and we were finally there. And it certainly did not disapoint. To way passed our expectations. So we were walking around seeing the cool sights and we came upon a miniature niagra falls. "Sweet!" we thought. We also though we should try and get a pic with both of us in it. So we asked these fun nice looking girls if they would assist us. And naturally they were quite happy to do so. But little did we know they were MORE then happy to assist us. They actually asked if they could get a picture with US. It took us a while to realize what was going on. At first we were like Oh you guys want a picture together too? Thats cool. but when i went to go take the camera they were like nono as they pointed at us. Then I turn around and some guy has his arm around jamie as hes getting someone to take a picture of the 2 of them. It quickly kicked in what was happening. Everyone was so overwhelmed by our sexiness they needed to have a photo with us. Either that or they knew me from youtube or myspace or something. Which is all very probable. Anyway we humoured everyone and everyone got their pictures....WEll..not everyone apparently. We walked a bit more still in a daze about what happened and off in the distance we see these guys taking pictures of us. LOL Am i right? So I go to stand in front a mini white house and they make their move, asking for their own white folk pic. Me being the attention love I am I had no problem with it. Jamie got sick of it pretty fast though. I was just trying to make myself believe i was super famous or something and everyone knew me from my latest hit song. Ahh yes. I was living out my dream..somewhat. So ya we got out of there shortly after that episode.
On this little map we had of our area it informed us a wal-mart was somewhat near by our hostel. So we wanted to check it out. And we did. Not as exciting as I thought it would be. but it was okay. We got some blue berry, kiwi and cucumber flavoured chips. (all seperate flavours) and we are pretty excited to try those later. They also sold alcohol right in the store.
After that we had to make the looonngg trek back to the hostel. (it was very long. my bodys starting to hate me again) And it was supper time. The map also informed us of some sort of western resterant by our hostel so we went searching for that. Im not sure if we found it but we went to the nearest resteraunt that had english outside of it. Unfortunately there was no english inside of it. We sit down and are given menues completely written in chinese. We stare at the menu for a few moments then back at the waiter..in fear. Trying to explain our situtation she eventually goes off to grab a different waiter who kind of speaks english. We try to explain to him in as many different ways possible that we dont eat meat. And well...I think he kind of understood..maybe. We let him know as long as we get food that is meatless we will eat what ever you give us. So off he goes and we hope for the best. The meal starts off with these delicious little frozen green tea sort of thing. It was a good start! Later the food is brought to us. there were 3 different plates. one with just tofu, one with..these..veggy noodley looking things, and one sort of vegitable me and jamie like to call the shower cap. Might be some sort of cabbage. That all goes pretty well. We are both quite confident the meals are in fact vegitarian. then a bowl of noodles come. That was a bit more questionable. there were these little pieces of shredded mystery. Looked like meat but we couldnt tell. Then this little ball. Which just had to be a sausage meat ball of some sort. Jamie tried it and that was her conclusion. I decided to just avoid it. And then this oter mystery ball that looked like some sort of nut at first but actually turned out to be an egg. probably a duck egg of some sort. Anyway we ate it. It was an extremely difficult situation but we just went in there and did our best and came out with full tummys. So im satisfied. Im not sure how the rest of our trip in china will go however.....
Alright well that was a BIG big day. We gunna go eat some blueberry chips now!
