    Why do I love China? China is the most successful example of development in history. In the last 30 years it has maintained sustained annual growth of more than 9%. There is no evidence of similar growth in an economy. During this period around 400 million people have emerged from poverty and the average income of one person has multiplied by 20. China has experienced in 30 years the 200 years of development and industrialization of West. But the Asian giant does not stop. Their financial capacity is brutal. Its foreign exchange reserves amount to 2.5 trillion dollars, more than double the country that follows (Japan), and three times the holdings of the whole European Union. It is the largest country in the world's inhabitants, the one that grows the most, the largest in terms of manufacturing capacity, the largest savings capacity and in a couple of years will be the largest consumer in the world. In the next decade we will attend the assault of Chinese companies to the western markets. We are already living with companies such as Lenovo, Alibaba, Huawei, Tencent, Xiami, Haier... In 2020 China will have 29% of all engineers and graduates in the world and by 2030, 37 out of every 100 scientists in the world will be Chinese (data from the OECD). There are more and more Chinese Universities among the 100 most prestigious in the world and the most famous in the West have more and more Chinese students ... and these occupy the top positions among the graduates. People who will return and develop their skills and competences in their country of origin….and then….

    I can with all honesty and sadness right now say: I have disheartened with my country right now, it's leaders, and now too many of it's people, those I never thought would have the attitude towards others that they do:
    But I love it's beauty, the natural wonders this country is graced with could be unmatched in the world. It's diversity, the myriad of nationalities I encounter every day. That both these are being threatened by the monsters now in control of our government scares the living hell out of me. May they rot!
    Sorry, Javier, this is such a positive post, I love how you feel about my country, I wish I had visited yours and could give glowing commentaries!
    May the U.S. survive this monstrosity we call a government and live to see the beauty of our country continue for many centuries to come...

    Sorry I hate basketball, watching it, playing it, everything about it; but that's natural for a shorty like me! Now give me a baseball and a bat and I'll hit it out of the Park! I also have my pins for a bowling a 200 and 250 game! Closest I got to a perfect game was the one that earned me the 250 pin, with a score of 276 (for the novices 300 is the perfect score!) thanks for the tag Javi!

    As much as I'd like to get in on this, I'd rather point out that, as @Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador said, each country has wonderful things and terrible things. I love my country, and I love many other countries. My experiences in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Italy, France, Germany, and UK have all offered incredible opportunities to explore a variety of foods, people, transportation, and cultural events. I have love for each country, not one about the other. That would be like having a favored child to me; I find beauty and sadness everywhere.
    Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador
    27/04/2017 #35 Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador
    One of the nice things about diversity in the world is there can be a place for any one any time and the ability to change. Each country has something wonderful and some drawbacks. Can you eliminate a drawback without impacting the good too? For example, the US does have inequality. However, that also drives innovation through a desire for something better. The US is still one of the few places that anyone can grow up and become president, wealthy or be a hermit. It's not perfect, the question is it close enough to your liking for what you want to do. And who know, what would have happened if Spanish explorers decided to go further North. :)

    Someone told me that "my country is the one that gives me something to eat", I understand it, although I know that we are always attracted again. Personally I do not believe in borders, from my current perspective, I agree with Mr. Jim Murrai, I think the USA, that is missing, in Spain we continue to fight for health and education remains public and quality, many are We depend on this. Usually few people, those who have their fixed work stop to think, do not put in place of ... fortunately not all are equal. We are in a happy country where abundance, good food, valued by its nutritional contribution, the good people and their humor and desire to pass it well above the difficulties. The only time I traveled was to Germany. I could not travel more, I would love to do it. @

    Great Buzz. I love all those reasons you have listed.
    Sadly I know many people who that these for granted and don't even realized what they have and are willing to give it up just for an illusion of feeling safe. Benjamin Franklin once said that “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”.
    The founding fathers were once safe under the crown, yet without everything listed above, and that is why they left. But, today I see those willing to go back.
    The Truth is 'We Really Don’t Know What We Have Until It’s Gone’. So, sometimes we need to see some else who has lost it to understand.

    Thanks for tagging me @Javier 🐝 beBee. I had no idea you've visited so many places! Like @Jerry Fletcher, I too, wish I would have traveled much more when younger. It's never too late though! I think what I love about the USA is would be the diversity of what you find in different regions of the US, lakes, forests, mountains, Pacific and Atlantic Ocean along our coasts. We are very lucky to have so many differing states to visit and we are close enough to drive to Canada.. well those of us that live up North. We have cultural diversity which is great (hope it stays that way) and everything you named above... well I could not agree more!! Thanks!

    Oddly enough I love my country because it is not the USA. I don't dislike the USA per se. I acknowledge that it is a great country, and I have spent a lot of time there having grown up in a town bordering Buffalo New York. I had many American friends. And when I got into advertising and photography I traveled extensively in the US and was always astonished to hear how little most of the people I met knew about Canada and the rest of the world. It's a great country but it is very insular. I don't judge America by what's going on right now, because that's just a silly phase they're going through. But I do judge them on the fact that their government does not treat all the citizens of the country the same way. America does a good job of being the world's policeman, but a very poor job of taking care of its own people, veterans, the disabled the poor. In Canada we have similar situations, but our government does work to address these inequities.

    What do I love about my country? Freedom. Freedom that we can follow a dream or idea no matter how old or how young one is. Freedom to be friends with whoever we want.

    I love that we can reach out and connect with people all over the world who are open minded and willing to reach out. I love learning about other cultures and people..and like Matt said: food ! Love to try different countries foods. LOL What is there to not love about anyone one's choice of where they live ?

    I have not traveled much (did I hear "Bucket List"? ) but the places I have visited have been so awesome, I would want to go back some time.

    #5 I love my good fortune for being born into a country that renews itself regularly and rewards the innovators that push it to be a little different down the line. The beBee community is full of minds that make it a second home. I wish that like so many members of beBee I had traveled more in my youth. Their observations and tales of the countries, cities and keepsake moments make armchair travel a constant delight. Muchas Gracias!

    #10 I love this! I love Spain and The U.S. and my heart has two sides: One for Spain and the other for San Diego. If you visit San Diego we have Beaches and mountains, deserts and unique cities and towns all within 30 minutes of each other. We have the best foods, including food from all over the world. San Diego has awesome indie artists and amazing innovators in business. I love the ambiance in Spain and the tapas. Bees are everywhere creating virtual bridges between countries and minds! I am grateful to have a home in the U.S.A. and in Spain! Olé!

    @Javier 🐝 beBee - thank you for this post and for the tag. I have traveled to several countries, and each time I go somewhere, I take some time to enjoy what the local people do and experience many of their everyday vs "foreign tourist things" to do.

    But, the best part of travel, to me is - it is so great to come home.

    Thank you, Javier, for tagging me and thank you for displaying a positive attitude about the US. Being an older person (whoops, did I admit to that!), my journey while living in the US has been a good one. Not everything is to my liking, however, I don't have expectations of living in a perfect world. I am grateful for where I have been and where I am now. I believe things happen for a reason and so be it. I am proud to be a US citizen.

The Pyramids, The Parthenon, the Colorado Canyon, The temple of Sobek, the greek war museum touched me greatly and my beloved Disney !!! Will visit Spain to see tha castles and the Santiago Bernabeu :) ... But as Countries go... Sorry never felt myself a patriot... Because usually (for me) it seems one don't follow the goodness of common people.. but the greed of those few in power... And as a lover of history I know where that leads..
