This afternoon we explore our local Chaoyang Park, with new friends Stephanie and her two young children. It’s huge with several gates. We take the wrong one which leads to a large whitewashed building surrounded by a 6 foot fence with the park on the other side. It’s boiling hot so rather than walk all the way back, we illegally climb the fence, tossing the children over to the other side before walking in the direction of a big funfair in the middle. The children go on the bouncy castle while I try out a Segway, one of those 2-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicle thingies. It’s fun but I’ll stick to the bike for commuting. Great park, and we've only scratched the surface.
