i've wondered before coming how many times in the future will Jun ask us to "remind her who she is and what she is to us, to tell her lest she forget , that she belongs to us" i want to in grain these thoughts so i can remember when in her actions she's "asking us" if she belongs.
we were warned that the chinese LOVE photos of themselves with americans, especially blond children. poor kestrel put up with it the first day (men mostly grabbing her and posing for a photo) and since then cries if anyone asks her, today 3 women asked her she started crying. i told her, kestrel the pretty girl just wanted you to take a photo, she quickly looked up" where????" i had to laugh, all 3 were "hmnm" not pretty :-)
