About this photo

It was raining when we visited the People's Park, so we weren't surprised to see umbrellas. We were surprised to see them lying on the ground, though, with pieces of paper attached that appeared to include information about people. We wondered if they were people who were missing or who had died, but there were no photos on them and there seemed to be spurious detail, such as height. Our guide on our trip at the Great Wall told us that these were most likely for dating, describing people who were looking for partners. When we visited the park around the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, we saw a similar thing, with people advertising for dates. There, it seemed to be the parents who were trying to arrange dates for their children.
