(Elephant Mountain Exercises, 3/7)
Among my favorite places on Xiangshan (next to the lookouts) is this Mountain Gym, a bunch of makeshift weights and steel bars, of course once more “hidden” just some 30 meters behind the “elephant rocks” where most tourists stop their journey. It’s usually a crowded place, of an easy-going and encouraging atmosphere. The men and women coming here know each other, and they are not trying to one-up each other in the size of their biceps but to stay healthy. And healthy they are!
