Friday Photo: Qing Dynasty Man

The Temple of Heaven is one of my favorite places in Beijing. In addition to being a major tourist destination, it’s also a favorite park where locals hang out. There’s an area near the east gate where you can find people doing everything from playing cards to dancing, to singing old revolutionary songs. One day I spotted this fellow all dressed up like a Qing Dynasty official practicing his stringed instrument.

Why not?

  1. Your “why not?” at the end made me think…
    Yes, if I had a Qing Dynasty official costume in my closet next to the other choices, and wanted to draw attention to myself, a sunny day in the park providing free music would be a good time to wear it!
