Walked from my hotel to the Black Bamboo Park couple of days ago. Here are some photos:

Lots of bicycles in Beijing.

Special lane for bicycles on many roads. Don’t get me wrong, plenty of cars and busses too — just with 13 million people, some people need to ride bikes to get around.

The park was fantastic. Here’s a picture from a movie I took. (I’ll post the movie below.) These women were dancing in the park to recorded music. Nice form of exercise and community involvement.

Plenty of stuff for the kids. There was even a little amusement park with rides.

I’m running out of time. I’ll post some more photos without any text.
