Again a marvelous documentary, Stan. I feel as if I’m right there with you. You don’t mention watching any tv, but did you happen to catch the documentary from the BBC called, China on Four Wheels? It was about how China has boomed over the past 2 years in population and economy. No wonder they are no. 2 in the world for exports, altho there is still a lot of poverty, especially in the countryside. Also a lot of billionaires! Note the ‘b’, not an ‘m’. So much for communism!
Thank you Mary! I missed the BBC documentary. From my perspective, China certainly is booming and just possibly some of the more negative aspects of communism are being slowyly replaced. Stan
