There is a Chinese saying:

mountain’s true panorama

because you just live in it.
If you leave the mountain

distance and different

cynical,they bash politicians and

I can’t forget that night’s
show,because one of speaker gave
his remark about Bijing’s new

I like his comment , it is really apeal
