37 Million More Males than Females

I received a nice early birthday gift today from my sister-in-law:

Did you know. . .

  • There are 37 million more males than females in China
  • There are over 5400 islands scattered in the seas off the coast of mainland China
  • China straddles five time zones but has adopted a single stand time
  • China has many significant inventions - gunpowder, printing, papermaking and paper currency, the abacus, stirrups, the seismometer, porcelain, silk and the compass.
  • There are over 1,000 volcanoes in China

Thanks Tammy. This is a great book to help prepare me for the trip!
