Dancing in the Park -- Beijing

Stephi and I agreed that this was the most amazing thing that we saw while we were in China last year. The Great Wall, the history, the cultral icons, the amazing buildings were all fantastic. However, the sight of all these people who would gather every day at the Temple of Heaven park to get together to dance, sing, play games and instruments, was like nothing we ever saw in the US. Every day, these people gather spontanously to participate in activities for enjoyment and excercise. Musicans bring instruments. People bring music to sing with others. The people here in this picture bring musice to dance to. It was an amazing sight.
