The Great Pool of China: Take a Dip

This is a surprising photo taken recently in a swimming pool located in Penglai, Sichuan, Western China. Seems like China swimming pools are getting more crowded.

warning: Don't swallow.

Thousands of swimmers can only just thread with their rubber rings when people started to swarm the place. China swimming pools are back to business when it starts to become popular again after the earthquake tragedy last May.

Chinese families are now starting return to their normal lives and seems like taking a dip on swimming pools is one of those missed routines.

I'm just fascinated with how Chinese people could get close to one another while on a public bath. I can't imagine pushing elbows while enjoying a relaxing bath (or maybe not so relaxing) in a pool. But they seem to be having a good time while pushing their rubber rings with each other.
