I'm a little drunk right now, so this one's gonna be good.
Each of the China Provincial Pavilions had a group of young beauties serving as guides. I'm pretty sure they weren't models - the Chinese have a habit of selecting only university students, screening for certain physical attributes (age, height, facial symmetry). This young lady was from ShanXi province, and working in its respective pavilion.
She's beautiful, no? Just a picture of grace, exquisite and genteel. Chinese men have a stupid habit of ignoring girls they're clearly ogling. I'm not one of them, so I spent some time talking to her and eventually asked her for a photo. I'm pretty sure these girls receive extensive training on how to deal with visitors, because her poise was extraordinary. In love. Alas......alas. Have many stories to tell about the girls I met during my trip, but none of them end very well. Will save them for another drunken night.
She's exquisite, and I'm clearly living in the wrong city.DF
