Political Axis Of China

 
“China is a sleeping giant. Let her sleep, for when she wakes she will move the world”
— Napoléon Bonaparte
 
 

This is the capital that every civilization would like to have but few, if any, can match. 3000 years of history still preserved in the same spot, now existing side by side with modern wonders such as the CCTV HQ and Galaxy SOHO.

Beijing is not just a collection of ancient and contemporary structures. The city is exquisitely beautiful with moats and flowers growing everywhere. The interstate Grand Canal remains one of the oldest and longest man-made waterway.

The pride that the Chinese must feel at their magnificent capital can only be felt by someone who feels an equal amount of shame at their own failure to create anything even remotely close to this metropolis that is the axis of the Chinese Civilization.
