Early morning walks

Filed under: My Word... — bbluesman @ 9:28 am

Nothing like getting some fresh air and exercise first thing in the morning. Here in Taiwan many middle-aged and elederly people have regular daily exercise ranging from T’ai ch’i to meditation (FaLunGong-the group that is banned in mainland China), walking and jogging. Hence walking around the outer oval path in nicely landscaped park with bridged stream with floating water lilies in it, is quite the cultural experience. There are more Taiwanese eyes staring at our large western exteriors, than our “round eyes” staring back at them in their “Chineseness.” Suffice it to say, we’re all getting some exercise while being culturally enlightened in a nice setting. I can think of many worse things, and few better.
