Took a stroll the other night and stumbled upon some outdoor ballroom dancing in Hengshan Park. Can’t say the couples were outwardly enjoying themselves — they smiled about as often as Chinese gymnasts during Olympic routines — but I guess you could call it pleasure by post-Maoist-retiree standards. Anyway, you don’t see that in Central Park.

The view across the river, of Pudong’s skyline, is pretty good.
