Tomorrow, October 28, 2013 Alex and I leave for Cup of China.
Did you know;
The People's Republic of China is the world's fourth largest country (by total area), and one of only five remaining Communist states in the world. As with the ancient Roman and Egyptian empires prior, China led most of the world in the arts and sciences for hundreds of years.
Alex, Janet (Alex's mom) and I will stay couple days after the competition. We will go to the Great Wall and Tiananmen Square.
The Great Wall of China is made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials. The Great Wall stretches from Shanhaiguan in the east, to Lop Lake in the west, along an arc which is at the southern edge of Inner Mongolia. The wall measures 6,259.6 km (3,889.5 mi) in length.
Tiananmen Square is the third largest city square in the world. It is located in the center of Beijing, China. Tiananmen Square is named after the Tiananmen Gate (Gate of Heavenly Peace).
Outside China, the square is best known for the student protests of 1989, a pro-democracy movement which ended on 4 June 1989 with the declaration of martial law in Beijing by the government and the death of several hundred or possibly thousands of civilians.
Ok, enough for now of the well known facts of China. Here is a link to our Blog from the Cup of China. I hope you will enjoy the news we will bring for you from our first senior grand prix and our first visit to Asia. Thank you for your support and viewing our website.
