I thought I’d start off with what we see and experience in our daily life here in Beijing. Mark took this photo yesterday morning. It took them 25 minutes to get from where he took the photo from to the overpass you see ahead. Notice the blue sky though? The day before this was taken was Sunday and it was one of the windiest days I’ve experienced here so far. We have to love those days though because it blows all the pollution out of the city and then the next day we have sky like this.
Mark and Kiah went to Chaoyang Park on Saturday early in the morning for a run. One of the things I love about the Parks here and also about the people (especially the older people) is that they really get out and use the wide open spaces and take full advantage of them. They (the older men and women) also take great care in their health and are out early doing Tai Chi, ping pong, flying kites, walking their dogs (which they were told by the government to do, to get a dog and walk it every day and it will be good for their health), and so much more. While Mark and Kiah were running in the park they stopped to take photo’s of the cute men and women playing ping pong. Mark started playing with an older gentleman. Kiah got some good shots.
Miles loves chocolate. As you can see in this photo. Chocolate ice cream, pop tarts, candies,cakes,brownies,cupcakes. If it’s made of chocolate, he will eat it. If we could not find Chocolate anywhere in China, I think we’d have to have it sent to us. This is Miles in heaven.
