   Life in Tianjin China:

  Tianjin in Pictures:

A New and Vibrant China-

For many people in the West, China conjures up images of rickshaws and straw hats or blue Mao-suits and communes.  In reality, since former President Deng Xiao Ping launched economic reforms and began the process of opening up to the world, China has gone through a dramatic transformation.  In fact, even now, every year that passes sees more reform, development and openness.  Nightclubs are packed with young people dancing to techno, house, hip-hop, and yes, good ol' fashioned rock and roll. 

The future continues to look bright with China hosting the 2008 Olympic Summer Games and the 2010 Worlds Fair.  Also on the horizon is the completion of the worlds largest dam at Three Gorges, the worlds tallest building, and the worlds largest suspension bridge.  All these modern wonders share the stage with some of the most famous sites in world history:  The Great Wall, the Terra Cotta Warriors of Xian, the ancient Silk Road, the Ming Tombs, Summer Palace, Forbidden City, and the Temple of Heaven.
