There is one thing I have learned and come to like in my life  here in China and it is the art of walking . Chinese people walk a lot. They walk the streets to shop, to sight see , almost to do everything and to go everywhere, the women walk and even climb the hills on  high heels . What a feat!  For sure they are the experts if walking is an art . I enjoyed walking along with them. My daily walk is  made more enjoyable by  the scenery along the way (like the one above) . I walk this path by the lake every day to work. But  when the temperature soars up to the 30’s or goes down to the zeroes, walking the 20 minute walk  becomes  a daunting challenge. But still I admire the people young and old alike who made walking such fun and easy exercise!
