One of my favourite memories was the arrival in Changsha. We drove for about an hour to get into the city, going past the first real rice paddies I'd ever seen in my life. When we finally got to the hotel, everyone in the bus started shouting, "Look, it's your people!" I thought, "What on earth are these people talking about?" I looked into the parking lot and I couldn't see any of 'my people'. Eventually one of my friends pointed out the sign above the entrance (see picture). I couldn't believe it! What are the chances of that happening?
