Beijing Impression

To prepare for the 2008 Olympics, Beijing has undergone some massive changes. Therefore, even though it’s not my first visit to Beijing but the modern Beijing is still very new to me. 

What surpised and touched me most about the city was not the high-tech buildings, excellent highways, impressive Olympics games venues, and renovated tourist spots; but instead, it was how I felt about the people there – they are confident, happy, proud of themselves and their motherland. In addition, I can tell they are very determined to build a better country for their future and next generation. Isn’t it one of the reasons why we wanted to host the Olympic games ?

No doubt the Government needs to find ways to produce better goods, and quality food. And the Government needs to help the poor and unfortunately people.

Give China some time, and give China a chance. Go, China, Go …
