Beijing Spring Joy
Beijing, spring 2019, Ritan Park. After the hard, cold winter here, the physical pleasure of spring - which comes like a sudden leap - is tangible in everybody walking around. People touch the trees and almost kiss the first flowers, bathe in the crisp sunlight and blink their eyes at the blue sky. In a pond in the park, children get in these colorful plastic bulbs to crawl-walk over the water that was still frozen weeks before. Pure joy. No mask.
