解放廣場,烏魯木齊,新疆。Liberation Square, Urumqi, Xinjiang, China

The square is right outside of Hoi Tak Hotel (海德酒店) that we stayed for the first day at Urumqi.  It is in memory of the communist army victory over Nationalist army in 1949.  At that time, my parents already established in Taiwan, away from the turmoil as Nationalist army of Republic of China was defeated by Mao's army all over China.  It is now a peaceful square where local citizen come to exercise every morning.
