I just finished reading this Washington Post article about a Chinese couple's road trip in the US and thought I should share.

Terrific story! Thanks so much for sharing the link.

I truly do believe we are all more a like than different. This type of story reaffirms that.

Interesting to read the reverse of what we've done, travel in rural China on our own using local transit. These folks had an advantage on us, they knew one more word of the foreign language than we did. We had some key words and phrases written out in Chinese. The biggest shock was finding out that a lot of peasants could not read

Anyway, good for them, you learn so much more about the local culture by travelling on your own rather than by group tour.
