At the Park, Harbin



The Zhaolin Park in Harbin is small, but packed with greenery with lots to do and see: groups singing or doing tai chi, children on the merry-go-round or watching the peacocks or rabbits in their cages.

I love how popular and well-used Chinese parks are. Early or late, you’re sure to see people dancing, walking or exercising.


I got to go to Beijing with two friends and since then I’ve been playing catch up with my classes. I did want to share some photos of some spirited dances we happened on in Beihai Park. They’re dressed in Uighyr traditional attire. The Uyghurs live in Xinjiang, western China. They’ve been in the news quite a bit lately.

Their dancing was joyful. Such a pleasant surprise. China offers great serendipity.
