A very interesting article that you should not miss. This is an article published by NG in 1971, by Audrey Topping who returned to the new China as a China-born Canadian diplomatic’s daughter. Some photos and stories are so attracting that even I have not heard or seen since I was born in China.
Seeing those people’s smiling, I feel really sad for us modern Chinese, as yes we are much richer than 30 years ago, however, we don’t have aim of life now and we are no longer happy…
Return to Changing China
(Originally published in the December 1971National Geographic)

Until recently, few reporters have been permitted more than brief, carefully guided visits to the world’s most populous nation. One of the first to move widely in China was Audrey Topping. Her perceptive account reflects both two years of experience in pre-Communist China as a college student and the viewpoint of a Canadian, whose country has traditionally maintained a tolerant stance toward the land of Mao Tse-tung and Chou En-lai.
—THE EDITOR (Gilbert M. Grosvenor)
Every morning for a week my sister Sylvia woke up to exclaim with a look of utter amazement, “Well, here we are in China!” She knew, and I knew, that she sounded naive, but I think I would have exclaimed in the same way, except that Sylvia always woke up first.
It was hard to comprehend that we were actually back in China—to us almost our ancestral land, for our grandparents had lived much of their lives here and our father had been born here. Sylvia had spent her early childhood in China, before I was born, and I had lived here in my teens. We were both eager to compare the new and old Chinas.
Several photos here.
