BEIJING, CHINA

Posted by Joseph

I have had an awesome time in China.  We visited Tiananmen Square, which is kind of the main place for tourist activity in China.  There is security, military, and policemen everywhere.  It is very different than America.  There is no freedom of speech and a lot of the internet is monitored and restricted.  Church allows no proselyting whatsoever.  We saw Mao’s tomb.  We saw the Forbidden City and it was amazing.  It was huge! The buildings were awesome and it was packed with tourists.

I also had a great time seeing the Ming tombs and the Great wall.  The great Wall exceeded all of my expectations.  It was awesome and it might have been the coolest thing we saw this trip.  I made it to the top and walked up over 2000 steps.  It’s hard to think of people building that thing with their hands.
