The guard at the door of our hotel on the campus of Renmin University likes to high-five Americans as they walk through.
Another guard, who sits in the hall leading back to the guestrooms, enjoys this conversation:
Guard: “Hello, how are you?”
Me: “Good. How are you?”
I just bought a box of “Pretz.” Yes, that’s a picture of a shrimp in the bottom left-hand corner of the box. Yes, these are shrimp-flavored pretzel sticks. No, I won’t share.
