| The Church of the Saviour
So,what's about China?
I mean, all of you have heard and seen the photos of the Great Wall, and the Forbidden City,right? It would be boring if I begin with them.
I'd like to display you something different.
Could we start with a church?
I visited this church in December, 2013. I didn't know that my mom's life had come to her last 2 weeks.
Church of the Saviour has a combination of Gothic and Chinese styled architecture.
My dad told me,in my mom's last days, she kept praying and asking God to take her away. She didn't want to live in this world anymore. Life had made her suffer so much.
Church of the Saviour has its unique significance in China's history. It witnessed one of the most important war China engaged in last century.
Long for short, 8 countries military entered Beijing, and defeated Qing Dynasty (of China).They are: Russia, UK, US, Japan, Germany, France,Italy and Austro-Hungary.
And the war took place at this church.

I wonder if I can start talking about these historical events in contemporary China's history. My family have experienced all three of these.
