unlike most of the erhu buskes we encountered in China, these musicians could really play. This was in the park of the "Temple of heaven", Beijing. The day we visited there were hundreds of people singing, dancing, playing music, juggling, playing cards, and various other artistic activities. At first we thought they were preparing for some upcoming performance, but we later had the impression that this happens probably every weekend. Just a bunch of bohemian artsy types (my kind of people!) who love to get together and perform together for the sake of enjoyment. This was a beautiful park, and a beautiful day.
