Travelogue on China

Last night we attended a travelogue called Perspective on Contemporary China. The gentleman presenting took a 24-day trip to China in 2003 right after it reopened from the SARSS epidemic. It was wonderful to see scenes from the land we hope to visit soon. The map above marks the route their tour group took through China.
A woman in the audience made a remark about how Asians live their lives in pursuit of excellence and are so very smart. I worry about the stereotypes our child will face, even the ones that seem positive. I hope our child will be characterized by his own personal strengths and weaknesses not pre-judged based on someone's perception of Asians.
