Roller Skating in Xi’an

Before the holidays, I was in Xi’an, China doing market research.  It had been a long day of customer interviews and all we had time for was a quick walk around the old city wall before the night sessions.

While walking next to the wall, in what seemed like a tranquil park, we ran into something completely unexpected – an outdoor roller skating rink.  It was a scene right out of the 70’s including speed skating, skate dancing, and a little roller derby all going on at the same time.

Check out the short video below that captures a bit of the excitement:
