Masao Miwa, Lived 50 years in Asia
Yes. I have lived on and off about half my time in China over the last 20 years. I have never been mistreated and because I am a senior, I find young Chinese very, very respectful and helpful.


It is easy to make friends, whether it’s a shop keeper, business associate, or just someone you just met. You can openly discuss things with friends and not fear for your life. Once most Chinese find out you are an American, they want to know more about your view, your government, your life in America, and more often then not, your view of China.
