It’s hard to believe how much a country can change in a generation. Our guide told us that 30 years ago people here didn’t have enough food. Today 40% go to college. Other than having some Internet sites blocked, this doesn’t seem like a Communist country. People here are working very hard to have a better life for their families. They understand that policies, like having one child, are what is best for the majority. Now I understand why China is becoming the next world power. The sleeping dragon is awake.
The times are changing
