Out of Hybernation

Spring must be here. I had my first sighting of the famous Power Walkers Of Shenyang yesterday!

You can see this all over the city. The leader carries a boom box and sets the pace. Everyone follows in paramilitary formation. You can see it in the early morning or evening. This sighting was at about 6:30 last night.

It’s probably a healthy exercise, but it’s a typically Chinese way to exercise (in a group, in formation, loud music). The best part of this sighting was that the song they chose to play was NOT “little apple.”

In Michigan, I’d get excited about seeing the first robin. In Shenyang, it’s this.
