China, the Middle Kingdom, the most populous country in the world, the country that, despite its territorial extension, does not change time zones. China, the country that exports technology of the highest level and which, paradoxically, at the time (2011), had the largest number of inhabitants who had never seen a smartphone.
Beijing, Datong, Ping Yao, Xi’an, Nanjing, Hangzhou, up to Shanghai, in 3 weeks. 21 days of uniqueness. I fell in love with this culture so distant, so unique, that despite the early years of Maoism, it has remained almost intact. At the same time, however, I felt so sorry for the misery in which the working class lives, for the moral ‘slavery’ that imprisons the majority and which transpires in their everyday life, for the pollution that prevents you from seeing the sky after the first hours of the day, and finally, regret for a present that tends to erase the magnificence of one of the eldest civilizations in the world.
Anyway, despite all, there is still so much to discover, so I will be back!
