A Far Away Place in the Middle of Yangjiang

I have shared photos of people playing xiangqi (Chinese chess) in Changsha here, Zhuhai here, and Liuzhou here. More recently, I saw two men playing the game in Yangjiang's Beishan Park atop a lush hill. They kindly welcomed me. As I watched, I enjoyed a sense of peacefulness in a place that felt much farther away than the several minutes walk from the city surrounding it.
