I am now at the Chinese capital. The Chinese government runs as a bureaucracy. A bureaucracy is.large group that runs off of a fixed set of rules. At each level of the bureaucracy, people direct those who are at the level below them.
The two most important industries in China were salt and silk. I am now at the place where some silk is made. Silk is a fiber that is made from silkworm cocoons. Since silk took a long time to make, the Chinese made a foot powered machine to make it more efficient.
Today I am in a home of a Chinese artist. Before the invention of paper the Chinese wrote on silk. During the Han Dynasty the Chinese invented paper. Paper in China was made from silk fibers, hemp, bamboo, straw, and seaweed.
