On one of our last days in China, Shane and I were wandering through a park in Shanghai and were approached by two different groups of young Chinese women that were on vacation there. Both groups were extremely friendly and wanted to chat with us, and of course practice their English. The first group we met included four women from Hangzhou. They were all very well spoken and really interested in becoming our friends. They talked to us for about 10-15 minutes and by the end invited us to tea tasting at a local tea house. Unfortunately, we hadn't been through the museum yet and had to meet up with the group so we had to decline. They were sad to see us wander off, but told us what direction to head to get to the museum. After we left the first group, we ran into a group of three women that were from Xi'an, the place Shane and I went to see the Terra Cotta Warriors! They were all very friendly and very eager to meet Americans. They were upset to find out that we had already been to Xi'an because they told us that they would have liked to take us around the city and be our own personal tour guides. After talking for about 10-15 minutes, again, this group was sad to see us go but we had to be on our way through the museum. The two encounters while walking through the park really surprised me. The two groups were so extremely friendly and really wanted to be our friends and I thought that was just amazing. Something like that wouldn't ever happen in the USA. It was another once in a lifetime experience in China.
