Day Seventy Nine, April 11, 2011

China's future players

Shanghai saw another glorious golden sunset today with the rare clear skies and fresh air that come with such a day, so I found myself drawn to witness the last moments of the golden show. I often see young Chinese people looking with such awe at the fast emergence of their largest and most popular city as if they cannot believe how fast their country is changing right in front of their young eyes. I can only imagine the amount of pressure exerted on the young generation of Chinese from their first school day until the time they take their place as columns in the People’s Republic of the future.

  1. Beautiful photo! Such lovely colors. The photo really matches your description. From my son’s friends from China, I can sense the changes in this country. I can sense that they are trying to keep up with these changes and to find their place among the changes.
