(This man was impressively flying a kite while sitting on a park bench. The kite was so high I could barely see it)

I could go a little out of my way and walk along the main boulevard to school. This way I pass Shi Jing Shan Amusement Park. I can see the park from my room on the 14th floor, and although it's supposed to be closed during the early spring, every now and then I can see the ferris wheel turn, or the rocking ship ride rock, or one of the smaller roller coasters move up and down. I suspect that they are merely testing the rides. But we are edging day by day to a beautiful warm, windy spring and as I pass the park the old men are out in full gear to fly kites.

Jing Yan Hotel staff gathered in the parking lot for group rope skipping.
