Take a Picture — Maddie


Megan with our favorite cab driver

I’ve learned in China that you can make a Chinese person’s day by taking a picture with them or even stopping to talk with them. When we are out and about in Tianjin,  we are usually approached by someone who wants to take a picture of us, especially Megan.  Many foreigners in our city get annoyed with the Chinese for doing this and can be very rude or even ignore them.  Chinese people love to take pictures of foreigners on their cell phone and they will keep pictures stored there for a very long time.  Each time we ride with this one particular taxi driver’s cab, he gets out his cell phone to show Megan the picture he has of her.I don’t mind taking a picture, it’s one way I can show an act of kindness.
