Our trip to the Great Wall was an amazing experience. Although there were many tourists, I met several Chinese people visiting the great wall as well. The interaction I had with them was quite interesting and fun. They always tried their best to speak English and wanted to be in many pictures with the UMD group. They were also very friendly and welcoming to all of us. I was told by a communications professor how not many Chinese see diversity in China, and when they do they get really excited. I find it interesting how the Chinese are not as exposed to diversity as Americans are in the United States. From my experience by being in Beijing for two days the Chinese enjoy seeing diversity, and I hope China continues to create a more diverse culture.
