Kunming Bubble Children

Another movie brought to you by Jeremy Productions. No children were (physically) harmed in the making of this film.

Apparently this is called “水步行球” or “Water Walking Ball” and a popular activity this holiday season. So if you’re in Kunming (Yunnan Province, China), be sure to swing by Green Lake Park and invest your 10 kuai ($1.25 US) for three minutes of fun.

  1. Hey Elizabeth,
    I’m writting you from Barcelona, Spain.
    I’ll spent about 3 weeks in Yunnan next november and since you seem so involved in the kunming’s cultural and social life, maybe you could tell me some nice places to visit, eat or dance that you’ve discovered and that not appear in the guides.
    Thanks a lot.
    By the way, I think your pictures are really good!

  3. Wow, must try that jnext time I’m at Cuihu. Although these were actually designed for walking over crowds of adoring fans. Wayne Coyne does it at every Flaming Lips gig.
