Happy Sixty Year Anniversary to the People’s Republic of China!
It’s a four day holiday for the locals here in China. When locals have holidays it usually means that I work more; doing entertainment shows to accommodate the tourists.
China’s last 60 years has been bittersweet with a unified people exposed to both hard living and the largest economic boom in modern history.
