Today we went with our group to a local park that is on top of hill called Baiyun Mountain. We had about a 5 minute cable car ride to the top and then were free to roam around for a couple of hours. The first two photos are around the welcome area. As you can see, they have started spring with all of the blooming flowers. There were different little scenes around the park as you can see Colette and Olivia in the third photo. The fourth we had someone snap at a pavillion that overlook the city.
Our group was the only Americans there. The Chinese people kept pointing at us and talking (no idea what they were saying) . It was very beautiful. You could see the downtown skyline, which is rather large. There was a guy who lives in Chicago that is in our group that said it was bigger then the Chicago skyline.
They had a display of birds there and I think we picked the ugliest bird to snap the fifth picture of Colette and Olivia (eventhough you cannot really see it in the photo, it was one ugly sob). And the last photo is just of Olivia and Bob. If you want to get technical, you can see Colette taking the photo in the left lense of my sunglasses.
The parks for the locals seem to be a place were people go to exercise and play. We saw many doing their exercises, playing badmitton, and hacki sac is really big here.
Overall, it was a very pleasant day. It was really nice to see a lot of green and blooming flowers.
I am ready for spring!
