hey green, there are a million places in the world that are worse off than china, chinese life is not all you say it is, in general the people there don't live much diffrently than people live here. I am going to live there, not because of some pretty pictures, but because I have alwase wanted to live there. All you know about china is what you`ve read in news papers, and the only thing that maes the papers is turmoil. China is nothing like what it was just a decade ago, and even though it is a work in progress, it is by no means a 3rd world tyranny.

My God, some of you people are absolutley clueless. Of course it's stunning but the country itself is in utter turmoil, full of disease, literal human slavery, extreme industrialism in the cities and even countryside, and forget freedom and noncomforism there. Yes, I finnd the Far East, including China, to be very interesing (I have a map of China in my room for Christ`s sake), but the fact is, currently, it`s one the worser places to live, you fools "oh gosh-e-gee, I wanna live in china, because some pictures look pretty!". Now that`s ignorance. Want to know a place that`s somewhat alike in culture,history and landscape? Try for South Korea, Japan, Thailand, maybe Laos. One place in China I would agree with though, is Tibet, however,they`re not exactly Chinese. But for the love of God, as beautful as it is, and as wonderful the people are, the leaders, the government itself, just isn`t (but hey, what government really is?)
