Trip 2 Days 11 and 12
Day eleven we were up bright and early to catch a bus to an amusement park called Discovery Land. It seemed almost like Disney Land, but smaller with no fast passes.
In the end Xiao and I only went on one ride, while Liaoda chickened out of anything better.
We went through a haunted house too, but it wasn’t really scary at all. Liaoda was a little scared because it was dark, so he ruined the fear thrill by turning on his phone’s flash light. xD
I screamed like a pansy on this while Xiao was all cool and calm as if it were a car ride…Although the view was nice. I could see out to the ocean from there!
Anyway, Xiao and I had wanted to go on a roller coaster too, but the lines were all two hours long, so instead we all went to the beach~
We even found star fish on the beach!
There were a lot of tiny crabs along this area, and there were a lot of clam-like things too. People come here to get their own dinner~
However, I found I am scared of tiny crabs because they move a lot like spiders…
After this we went back to Xiao’s side of town by subway for dinner and then back to her apartment to relax. Now, it had been my first time really riding a subway, so this was a kind of fun little trip for me~
Day twelve we were back off to the beach!
A closer one this time.
I had wanted to swim in the ocean, since I never have~
Sadly Xiao has a lot of fun pictures from here that I don’t have. There was a little girl statue that was crouched on the ground, and a little boy was sitting on her when we walked by and holding onto her braids like she was a horse!
Xiao made Liaoda sit on it too~
Also, I hadn’t been wearing my swim suit because I thought there’d be a changing room. There wasn’t, so Xiao has pictures of how I changed into my swim suit under my clothing. xD
Liaoda had been too chicken of the cold water to join me for a swim, and Xiao likes to just sit on the beach, so I went out on my own~
After my swim, we went to a restaurant close by and had a nice dinner~
After dinner we took a nice taxi ride along the sea side then returned to Xiao’s home to pack for our trip south!
