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.
