Walk in the Park

Baotou has a surprising number of parks, so we try to get out a couple times a week, dust the chalk off our clothes, and enjoy a stroll.
The three wise monkeys (see, speak, and hear no evil) are here with their do-no-evil companion.
We see many kiting enthusiasts in the parks, with large reels to navigate their kites that sometimes fly almost out of sight.
Diane has been telling Daniel to go fly a kite, and it looks like he might. There's certainly a lot of choice.
The carving of intials in a tree trunk must be a universal.
We ended the day with a gourmet cup of coffee, complete with whipped cream and artistically shaped spoons. At these moments we feel we're living in the lap of luxury.
