Chaoyang Park in the Rain

Bella only had Friday off from school for Labor Day weekend here (all of China used to take the entire week off, until it was realized that even China's infrastructure couldn't take the strain of all those people traveling at the same time), and we had our heart set on going to the Forest Park just north of all the Olympic venues. Of course it rained. So we went to nearby Chaoyang Park instead, and when we had enough of being cold and wet, we ducked into the Solana mall for lunch and to marvel at all the empty retail space.
