Time to go to China

Yay China.

51 °F

We are finally in China and it is veryyyy different from any were I ever been.. But I am excited to see what I can get into. I am going to Hung Kong China. China is seen variously as an ancient civilization extending over a large area in East Asia, a nation and a multinational entity. With almost 4,000 years of continuous history, China is one of the worlds oldest civilizations. It possessed one of the most advance societies and economies in the world. In 1949, after major combat ended in the Chinese Civil War which made two states combine into one , calling themself China. China ranges from mostly plateaus and mountains in the west to lower lands in the east. There are almost 7 million people that are crammed into Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a city for skyscrapers but thats not the only thing here. There is also lush countryside and small rural commuities. I am visiting Hong Kong Victoria Peak, which is the highest peak point on the island with amazing views north over the city as well as overr the greener southern slopes down to the South China Sea. Clinging onto the northern slops of the Peak are the prestigious Mid-levels, full of tightly packed, towering blocks of flats. The Mid-levels steep slopes are best negotiated using the Peak tram or the Mid-levels Escalator. Beautiful place to see when you are traveling. Then we went to a theme park that a lot of locals told us about called Ocean Park. It was very fun and a change to what I am use to.The per capita of China is 7,400 in 2010
