On our last day in Beijing (earlier this week) we visited the Temple of Heaven. Right outside of the temple is a huge park where many people go to be outside, whether playing cards or getting some exercise. One of my favorite things to see was a group of people dancing in the park. Of course, I had to join in the fun! Melanie, Ellen, Ms. Ross, and I went right into the middle of the dancing crowd. The best part is that no one really questioned what we were doing. The only thing I was asked is “how old I was.” Now, my dancing skills were not up to par with the rest of the group, so I was probably just embarrassing myself, but it was still a really fun time!
