    Open-air culture center


    At the time these photos were taken, we were going to visit Temple of Heaven in Beijing, so when I saw many middle-aged people in the surrounding parks dancing, singing, meditating, knitting and playing cards, I wondered what is going on.


    Later, I learned that those people are retired people and enjoying their lives at "the open-air culture center".


    I saw a lot of hard working people in China but am glad to know that Chinese people also try to enjoy life when they have enough time.


    We went to see "Temple of Heaven" but also saw "Park of Heaven".
