China -- a superpower emerging at breakneck speed. It's the Holy Grail for risk-taking entrepreneurs. Every day, hundreds of British businessmen arrive full of hope and expectation. It's the land of opportunity. It's a place where dreams can come true. But Chinese entrepreneurs, unleashed after 50 years of communism, are taking no prisoners in their own relentless quest for wealth. In the wild east, only the toughest will survive. These British businessmen are risking everything as they venture into the real dragon's den. Who will make their fortune and who will return home penniless? Tony Caldera's cushion business has been ruined by cheap Chinese imports. Today, his Liverpool factory stands deserted. There were hundreds of people working there. They all had jobs for life. They were the number-one cushion maker probably in Europe. Everything was made in England, and life was great, and they were all happy. All of a sudden, China has come along, and they just can't compete anymore.

Peninsula Valdes is one of the priorities for naturalists visiting the South American continent, and it is perhaps beacuse this is the place where the observation of the great whales is easyer.  Every year during the month of July, the whales arrive to these shores of Patagonia to give birth and raise their calves. His gentle nature makes approaching to them possible to enjoying the wonderful spectacle of his jumps in the sea. Approaching the austral summer, in the month of November, these giants leave the coast of Peninsula Valdes to head south in search of more water rich in krill, their main food.  We will also witness the activities of large elephant seals during the breeding of their babies. This is the only continental enclave in the world where this happens.  Much of the Patagonian fauna is well represented in Peninsula Valdes. We also approach the guanaco and interesting Patagonian Hare or mara.
