Took a run north from my hotel and ran into Chaoyag Park. Unfortunately, I could not run in this big park - I only saw things around it.
At its south west end, I saw an interesting construction going on. It looked a bit like the famous Bird's Nest Stadium.
This is a river on the west side of it. It curves through the park all the way to the east side.
On the east side of the park, there was a nice woody trail. It was nice to run through the trees.
Also on the East side, there was an amusement park with this enormous statue of a basketball player.
This lake was out of the park on the east side - very peaceful.
But, the traffic in Beijing is actually very bad all over. I was told later that the air quality is not good at all.
