Tianamen Square

What I consider to be the centre of China’s politics and history. China has moved on since the terrible events of Tianamen Square in 1989. Though censorship is still rife and guides are not allowed to explain what happened here in 1989. Criticism of Chairman Mao and the Chinese government is not permitted and can be dangerous. No democracy or freedom of speech here in China but the people do generally have a much better life since the economic reforms and since China opened up to foreign investment. Deng Xiaoping opened China to the Global market famously saying about trading with foreigners  ”It doesn’t matter whether the cat is black or white, as long as it catches mice!!”
