It is a sad fact that most overseas study tours turn out to be tours without the study. Charged an ...

That's right!
Overseas study tours are more about sightseeing rather than studying, and cost a lot!

You don't get it, do you?

I live in a FOREIGN country. I see a film that you call "reality" with my own eyes, every single day. I don't even have to pay to watch this film.

They paid for their own fares. Our country send monkeys for study tours on our expense.

China government sends tens of thousands of government officials to study in overseas. They learn how to enjoy good food and learn new ways to siphon money out of China to make their lives upon retirement less not so comfortable in China.
This is the real pain but China government could do nothing but watch them continue till China be owned by foreign governments!

What the purpose of you putting on your 'color lenses' for in other countries like China?  Is there  ...

I did the same in other countries where I lived for a while, as I do in China: observe. Watch. Experience. It's a never-ending saga, all very different from where I grew up. It's never boring if you are an outsider. But it can be lethally boring if you are one of those playing a minor role in the drama.
