Today we also went to a park in the center of Nanning. Surrounded by high rise apartments and businesses, it is an oasis in the middle of this city of over 6 million. It was close to our hotel- only about fifteen minutes walk. Miko said many of the older people go there frequently to get their exercise. She said because they often exercise in the city squares, they call them square dancers, though it is a far cry from the do-si-do we think of. This is my idea of exercise 😉. The ladies are so graceful in their movements. There were some ladies being photographed, and a man with a traditional Chinese instrument- close to the size of a violin- accompanying two ladies singing. A small waterfall, several ponds and lakes, a cherry tree orchard and peach trees, children's playground, amusement park, and miles of trails lined with flowers, magnolia and palm trees were just a few of the things we saw. In the midst of this bustling city, it is a place to get away and relax.This afternoon we packed for the next leg of our trip. We head to Guangzhou tomorrow morning. Only one more week before home!!! Thanking God for His goodness!!
