Taiji lessons in Qingdao’s Licun Park

It turns out our kids aren’t the only ones in Qingdao’s Licun Park 李村公园 who attract smartphones.

It’s that magical time of year again in our neighbourhood, when spring blossoms surround the taiji lessons (太极拳). Took these this morning on the way to work. Click a thumbnail to open the gallery viewer!

Sunrise sword dancing & taiji, our neighbourhood, Qingdao, China

Our neighbourhood still has a little bit of exotic China. These are from two weekends ago, literally a stone’s throw from the preschool and a 1-minute walk from our apartment.

Every morning a group of retirees practices tàijíquán 太极拳 and sword dancing 舞剑.
