As every Chinese knows, after the founding of new China, Mao Zedong was the first chairman. We call him Chairman Mao. In my mind, he is the greatest man in the world. Last summer vacation, I went back to China. My family showed me a tourism project, which was called "Red Tour". Routes of that tour was almost the same with the Long March. The Long March was a Chinese revolutionary mythology. Mao Zedong led the Red Army trekked the hard journey of 8,000 miles, and established a new Communist base in Yan'an.

After hearing that, I asked, " Did Chairman Mao eat the same thing with ordinary soldiers?"
