Michelle Obama Jumps Rope in China with Her Daughters!

Michelle Obama Jumps Rope in China with Her Daughters!

Michelle Obama plays a game of jump rope with the locals while visiting the Xi’an City Wall on Monday (March 24) in Xi’an, China.

The 50-year-old First Lady of the United States was also joined by her daughters Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, for the educational and fun experience.

“As I watched these performances and demonstrations, I was struck by how this wall, which was constructed as a physical blockade, now serves as a symbolic connection between China’s past and present,” Michelle wrote on her blog about visiting the site. “There you stand, on top of a wall that’s hundreds of years old – a wall that has withstood war and famine and the rise and fall of dynasties. Yet when you look down, you realize that below you on both sides lies a city not too different from one you’d see in America – a city full of cars and bustling commercial districts, but also quiet residential areas.”

“It reminded me a little bit of when I met with a class of sixth graders back in the United States – 11 and 12 year olds who visited China last year.” Michelle added. “They told me that before they left, they assumed they’d encounter historic palaces and temples everywhere they went, but instead, they found massive cities full of skyscrapers and bright lights.”
