Playing in the Square
Pictured above is the Kindergarten Square around 10pm. After the sun goes down and Tianshui begins to cool off, kids come to relax in the square. It is right next to the teacher compound so often kids will come to play games and burn off energy in the square and Alkaid staff will come and join in. It's a great place for making new friends and learning more about each other. However, It isn't just children who come and play. It is a very communal space where women organize dance in the morning, men play pickup basketball in the evenings, and dogs can run around. It is fun for everyone and Alkaid faculty is so happy to be apart of the unique area. With a nearby shop, it is the perfect spot to have a snack with your friends or cool off with a popsicle.
