One of the things that I have enjoyed watching is the way the locals get their exercise. We stumbled upon a playground on our walk yesterday morning. The park was full of people, but much to our surprise, there was not a child in sight. There is a small portion with playground equipment for small children. The larger end has equipment that could be used by children, but is instead used by the "more senior" generation to exercise. They are doing twists, leg lifts, arm raises and everything that you could find at Lifestyle Fitness. They are also big into playing hackeysack here - at all ages. I do not recall seeing an overweight Chinese, unlike one of the storekeepers that poked one of our friends in his belly today and said that Americans eat too much. I shortly after offered him M&Ms to ease his pain. :-)
