When Tian and I got to Beijing last fall, we were surprised to find a local massage place run and staffed by blind people. But as we learned more it makes a lot of sense. In China (as in other countries), if you are physically handicapped in anyway, it can be very difficult to make a living and get by day to day. So this massage can provide a good professional opportunity as well as a community for the blind.
After a day of hiking on the wall, we took Dan and Fro to get a quick blind massage. While there, they let us take this picture. Tian stayed with Dan and Fro to help them communicate.
After the massage, we walked to dinner at a local spicy restaurant. While we waited for a table we played Chinese checkers and snacked on sweet popcorn and something similar to chex mix.
