Dancing in the Dark - um, PARK

Here's the 2nd finished LO that I started last Saturday, about a visit to one on the major public parks in Beijing.
While people would probably consider you crazy in many Western countries if you'd started to dance or belt out a song in public (flash mob notwithstanding...), it is very common to see people work out or play in Chinese public parks. However, it's mostly the elderly that spend their free time this way, and this phenomenon is in serious danger of disappearing as the younger generation don't have the time (or inclination) to socialize in the cities' parks.

Visiting the Tian Tan Gong Yuan (park surrounding the Temple of Heaven) was one of the highlights of the trip, in my opinion.
