I spent my first Sunday in the south by walking around in Futian district, 福田区, Shenzhen center.
Wandering around I ended up in a park close to Yitian subway stop, at the end/beginning of the line that connects to my present home, Longgang.
There was a group of middle age men, all wearing a red t-shirt that started, in a small square inside the park, to perform with the diabolo and other juggling instrument, including also using a whip or two at the same time and making movements very similar to Taiji movements.
After what looked like a warming up the set up for the real show, and the result was really cool, given also the special part with the tiaiji/kungfu sword exercise!
i can’t even upload on flickr these days.. In the south internet is even worse (more controlled ) than in Hefei, and I have experienced lots of weird behavior in ways not encountered before.
FUNNY THING OF THE DAY – Also in the south my bad luck is following me very close, as usual. So then, walking around and enjoying the landscape I did not see that the pavement was broken and I twisted again my right ankle. It happened 20 meters after I passed a Starbucks, so I decided to go back there, get an ice macchiato and.. let my ankle enjoying it as well:
