Saturday in the Park


This afternoon a friend and I visited one of the ancient Buddhist temples in town.  In front of the temple is a fun park that we stopped at on our way in.  It was a great day to be in a Beijing park—lots of sunshine, and lots of people out enjoying said sunshine.   We took pictures and chatted with the old folks, which caused quite a stir, being that we were speaking Chinese!  Two blondies speaking Zhongguo Hua — Chinese talk!  On the side you will see a photo album with some of my favorites from the afternoon.  We’re definitely going to go back there someday and get the stories of the old men we talked to, who have lived in this city for 80 years!!
