Hacking Our Way Across Beijing

One of the popular pastimes in Chinese parks is kicking around a shuttlecock made of feathers. A year ago, we were, truth be told, dreadful, really dreadful. As time has gone by, though, all four of us have developed some skill, not a lot, but enough to keep the bird flying for a few consecutive kicks.

The key? Take a look at Julie's form here...She has just propelled the birdie off the instep of her foot. This is a very reliable approach, much more so than using the top of your foot.

Next time you pay a visit to Matey Road, ask us and we'll pull out a birdie and introduce you to hacking, Chinese style.
