"A Date with China" international media tour on Tuesday came to Jinyuan community in Guanshanhu district of Guiyang, capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province. Many media members tried their hands on Chinese traditional handwriting. As Briton Lee John Barrett found it, calligraphy is not an easy thing.

These old people practice long time, pass the writing skills on to their grandchildren to keep the thing alive and it's really good, said Lee.

Lee and his son Oliver Joshua Barrett who live in Shenzhen are Chinese internet celebs. They make videos about China.

In fact, calligraphy is not the only pastime for senior citizens at Jinyuan community. There is a school for the aged at the community. Tai chi, yoga and traditional Chinese instruments are all on the class schedule.

The community has 3,585 households and 11,135 residents, about 17 percent of whom are above 60 years old, according to Yuan Qin, the community's Party chief.
