Our next day with Lucy was one of my faves. We went to the Temple of Heaven first thing in the morning. The temple itself was quite nice, but what was great to see was the big park surrounding it. There were groups of people everywhere doing dancing, Tai Chi, playing cards, dancing with swords, playing some kind of game where you toss a ball back and forth with a flat paddle, all sorts of stuff. It was really great to see so many people out in the park having a nice time and being active.
After that we went to the Summer Palace of the Dragon Empress. It was an amazing location along a lake with nice landscaping and architecture. Not too bad a place to get away from it all I suppose 🙂
