Trip to China 2: Visit a Public Park

People in China live in apartments in urban areas, and  they don’t have private gardens. Cities are highly populated, and there are few green spaces. Public parks are the places for them to do exercise, meet up, and also enjoy nature , especially for elderly.  They are a microcosm of Chinese culture.  The parks open all day and many traditional Chinese activities are being performed, from  Tai Chi, Mahjong, fan dancing, card-playing, to Beijing opera.

There is a public park just in front of the apartment which our family live. We went to visit it on a Saturday morning. Since it was weekend, there were more people than usual :- some children were having weekend courses, some were just enjoying to see flowers and shrubs.
