OK, sometime, it’s good to be a kid again, or at least act like one. Our intrepid group of local friend and I decided to hit one of Beijing’s amusement parks, There are several, the largest of which closed before it opened. Today we’ll go to the Shijingshan Park on the western side of Beijing and not far from the Number 1 subway line and only a few stops from where I was staying in Pinguoyuan. There was some sort of exotic ticketing experience and coupons that my colleagues engaged in to get the best price for all. It was August, but there was still a Christmas tree at the entry plaza.
