Cu ocazia JO au venit mulţi turişti în China. Beijingul s-a pregătit să îi întâmpine cum a ştiut mai bine.
v-aţi recunoaşte şi dumneavoastră dacă aţi fi aici. Amicul Wang Zi Qian şi-a propus să fotografieze "some foreigners" pe timpul olimpiadei, iar eu să cer câteva impresii localnicilor.
s-au apucat să practice caligrafia şi iau lecţii de Tai-Chi. Am încercat şi eu, mărturisesc spre hazul şi surprinderea prietenilor mei la început. Acum, când am apucat să mai ştiu câte ceva despre ei, le vine e greu să creadă sunt totuşi o "foreigner", o "loani" şi că voi pleca curând. Azi Qian dădea năvală să mă anunţe că nu ştiu ce amic, ziarist, l-ar fi informat că anul viitor va fi anul când China va sărbători 60 de ani de prietenie cu România! Va fi anul României! Aşa se zice pe aici. O fi!, zic eu. Cine ştie ce e pe acolo, prin sferele înalte! This days your president met our president in order to prepar it! Ha, ha. May be you will come with presidential delegation to meet me again and work together! Mother, who knows! Ha, ha aşa sunt ei optimişti şi veseli.
"My impressions about the foreigners in Beijing?
Oh, What impressed me mostly was the exciting atmosphere of the coming. It seems that every people who was walking on the road are for this sports pageant. As we know Beijing is such a wonderful city that it catches millions of people both at home and abroad every year. It is not strange to meet foreigners in Beijing, but this time it's really an overwhelming majority. No matter where I went, I always met them here and there, white or black. And I found most of them so lovely and friendly! For example, whenever Chinese people ask them to take a photo with, they will pose well, and they also like to take photos with Chinese especially with the little kids. What impressed me mostly was that whenever I looked at them, they would give me a warm smile and said: "Ni Hao!". It's really a sweet feeling! Besides friendly, most foreigners are full of the environmental awareness. Most of them go out by bike, which is not only good for environment and healthy but also suitable for travelling around Beijing.
In my eyes, most foreigners are easy going, and so are we in their eyes. When seeing a wonderful thing, they'd like to praise from heart and if it possible they'll take photos for memory.
Although we are from different countries and have different appearances, we can make friends as long as you are kind and sincere. Language is not problem, just show your smile from your heart and you'll get reward anytime, for as they saying goes, one world one dream." (Huang Xiufen)
