Things to Do in Beijing: Sport Calligraphy at the Temple of Heaven in Beijing (Tiantan)

Just beyond the entrance to the Beijing Temple of Heaven, locals were engaged in all kinds of interesting activities like Tai Chi, hacky sack, ballroom dance, sword fighting, and writing Chinese calligraphy characters on the sidewalk. In this video, people are using a sponge and what appears to be soapy water to write on the cement. It dries, but you can still see the residue it leaves behind. The men stand around judging each other on the quality of the writing.
