It is a beautiful park and hard to imagine it was a big slum right in the middle of the city. Some of the seniors that were here on their missions said that they were not to enter in that area at all, apparently it was bad. Beatiful park, beautiful weather, relaxing P-day!!!
We had a Senior Missionary FHE at Elder & Sister Gongs apartment to celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival. We all brought lanterns and had to go out and look at the moon, a tradition of this holiday. This is when the moon is full and round, so the Chinese gather their family around a table and spend time together. They believe the full, round, light of the moon kind of represents the family.
We moved a couple of months ago from a small, old centrally located apartment to a small, newer but further from the office apartment. We still only have about 600 square feet but it is newer, quiet and cleaner. We love it and have adjusted to riding the bus everyday.
