He loves his country - China

He loves his country - China

Hong Kong

There was a time Hong Kong people feared China so much. Before the handover of Hong Kong to China in 1997, most of the rich secured foreign passports and residency rights abroad.

Ten years after the handover, most of the Hong Kongers have learnt to love their country - China. This villager put a China's national flag on his bicycle and was reading news about China.
