As Hillary said earlier on in our trip, we needed to take a vacation from our vacation, and today was the day. We woke up, ate a quick breakfast, and somewhat unsuccessfully find the massage parlor where we made reservation. Afetr a sweaty walk we made it, we were lead into a dim room, each of us separated by a curtain. We get to put on fun silk pajamas and we get an hour long chinese massage!! OH MY GOD, it felt so good. The lady litterally massaged everything from my back, to my toes, to the top dent on my head. Amazing. Feeling very refreshed we found the nearest restaurant and had a tasty lunch. I believe that pork dumplings pretty much my favorite food right now, i cant get enough of them. Then we were off to the waer park!
After a subway ride and a taxi we arrive to Dino Beach, a prehistoric themed water park. Its pretty fitting since im in the middle of reading Jurassic Park right now, lol. This place was so fun, i think we all felt like kids again. We rented some tubes and hit the wave pool (which wasnt the worlds largest by the way but still pretty cool). Then we tried out the water slides but i think our favorite thing of the day was the lazy river, which actually had a cave attraction you float by and a part of the river that has huge waves from the wave pool, crazy cool.
We stayed there for about 7 hours, hopped back on a taxi, grabbed some McDonalds and came back to the Hostel, a great fun day. Im chilling out now in the lounge, watching the Olympics. Venesula was getting ROCKED by the Chinese volleyball team but i cant be sure since i cant read the score or the words on the TV. I really enjoy hanging out in the common area, so cozy, i wish i had more people to talk to though. Maybe i should stop typing and go mingle :P Next time i write i will be back in Beijing (unless i post some pics tonight) Until then, peace~~!!!
