Warm embrace of Granite State from Pinkerton Academy exchange students from China
“I think America is very attractive,” said student Chen Yi Dan. “The environment is very good. It’s just like heaven for us.”
“So when you are in China, you aren’t just sightseeing, you are taking note of the social hierarchy, music, dance, education and government,” Underhill said. “We aren’t just letting the kids go and have a good time.”
Yi Dan said this is the second time she has traveled to the U.S., and she was struck once again by the friendliness of Americans. She said she was surprised when people in restaurants and other businesses took the time to greet her. In the part of China where she lives, the pace is much faster, she said.
On Tuesday, the group shared ice cream with the Pinkerton Student Council members and later enjoyed playing a game of Wiffle ball. Based on their smiles, the activities seemed to reduce the distance between the two cultures .
