Other foreigners

We’re not the only ones

It’s quite possible that we are the only Americans in Luzhou. But, we have been seeing a lot of Middle Eastern people recently in the grocery store — a lot being more than one, more than once. I was talking to a couple of the kids the other day, and they mentioned that they see other foreigners working at Zhongshan Park, which is a small amusement park in the center of the city. “They’re from Pakistan,” the girls told me. Which actually makes sense, as Pakistan does boarder China in the East. They’re still a long way from their home — but they’re much closer to home than we are.
