On the long weekend, I didn't feel like going away because most places are crowded and expensive. So, I decided to go to Lenin Park near my old house with my friend and Misa - my lovely dog. The weather was great, sunny but not too hot.
There are not as many people in the park as usual. Maybe a lot of people went to Reunification Park instead, which has lots more options to choose for kids. There are some old men playing cards, reading comedy books and kids playing football. It looks like a painting which lots of people and activity. There also are some people sleeping on the park benches and some couples getting to know each other :) It seems that lots of old people love coming to the parks not just to sit down and relax, but because they can meet other people and chat about everything, politics, the lottery results... while they have a cup of tea or rice wine. They seem happier being here than being home doing nothing.
My dog gets so excited when he comes here because he can run on the grass freely and sometimes he barks at people or chases the kids' ball. It's hilarious.
