Beijing’s parks

Filed under: Uncategorized — chinatalk @ 2:31 am

Public parks in China can be fascinating for an outsider – despite the increasing pace of life they remain focal points of local community life and many of its traditions. This can be especially true in Beijing, where the feel of the “old city” is overwhelmed by construction, commercialism and floods of outsiders. Early morning is best to catch many of the retired people on their exercise/social life routine and the video below is one such moment captured somewhere in the city center… I couldn’t help myself and made some of it intentionally silly – no offense to the feelings of the Chinese people intended, ha ha.
