curious friday – countryside gym

Spotted in the countryside – an outdoor gym the Chinese way. Now I can see why these gym parks (yes, that blue equipment hidden in the hay) can be rather useful in big cities like Beijing, but in the countryside, surrounded by mountains, it seems that the people get their exercise the good old-fashioned way: doing outdoor work and walking/biking everywhere!

But one has to admit that the backdrop of the mountains is pretty impressive and certainly inspirational for a lil spin in the park and few crunches!
