China is an interesting place and they have had many laughs so far. Something that has completely puzzled me is how people in Shanghai are treating them ... it is very, very unusual. People are going out of their way to be kind to them. You just don't see this type of behavior in Shanghai. After telling one of our students about this, including how a woman chased after us on her bike to share her food with my parents, he flat out said he did not believe it. I wouldn't either, except I'm seeing it with my own eyes.
