Joe’s take on China

We were in China. We went on a trip. First we went to a tea ceremony; it was not good. Then we had a rickshaw ride. We then ate dumplings. The next day we went to Tiananmen Square; it was HUGE. The biggest square ever. Next the Forbidden City where the Emperor lived. Then we went to the Llama Temple [it was not for llamas]. It had a Buddha statue that was 3 times the size of meJ We then went to dinner. Sadly, I had to eat duck 😦 😦 😦 😦

Mao Zedong, the first communist leader of China, and Zhou Enlai, second leader, also ate there.

The GREAT WALL OF CHINA IS AWESOME – THE BEST THING EVER [but it has very steep parts]. We went sledding [not on snow], but you control your speed so, meh. Next we went to an acrobatic show with bikes, hoops, and pure awesomeness. On the last day we went to a pearl market with gun scopes, shirts, bags and brass knuckles 🙂

We also went to the Temple of Heaven, and it was pretty cool.

  1. Hello Joe, I couldn’t imagine being in Tiananmen Square! Did you get a picture with a tank in front of you? That would be sweet!
    You don’t like duck? I’ve always enjoyed it, duck and noodles, yum. But then your Uncle John will eat anything, as long as it is not rotten.
    Did you get a pair of brass knuckles at the pearl market? When your Dad and I, and the rest of the family, went to Mexico I thought the switch blades were cool, and wanted one really bad. But I wasn’t allowed to sneak it across the border! I had to listen to my parents, they didn’t want me to go to jail. I do have a couple of them now though.
    I hope all of you are having a blast, that’s a trip of a life time! Take a ton of pictures! You guys will have to come visit again! Maybe by then it won’t be so Hillbilly here! And you can stay longer.

    1. Hi Uncle John,
      We do not have a picture of a tank, sadly. I really, really don’t like duck. I tried to sneak brass knuckles in my bag. Your place won’t be so hillbilly? Yes! ☺
