China has an ancient history but the country is technically quite young. After a brutal occupation by Japan up until the end of WWII and a civil war that forced the losing side out to Taiwan, Mao Zedong and his Communist Party formed The People’s Republic of China on October 1, 1949. Seventy years later, I just happen to be in Beijing. What better place to join in the celebrations.
It seems like everyone is in Tiananmen Square. This massive space has seen its fair share of trouble but today it’s full of celebration and happy people.The kids especially seem to enjoy it.There are even synchronized dancers putting on a show for everyone who walks by.I’m not the only one taking photos. It’s a selfie paradise.Happy Birthday, China! 生日快乐 !I wish you peace and prosperity. Tomorrow is a brand new day.
