Weird traditional request - I agree with you

By Kelly Sobczak
Hospitality, the Chinese Way
Yullin, China
This wasn't the plan. I was to be standing on the Great Wall, but instead I am singing "Yankee Doodle Dandy" to 150 Chinese students. Not only am I singing, but I am also marching in place. To top off the tune, a jaunty salute and an exaggerated bow are even tossed in. It is a performance I will repeat six times this day.

Since refusing the request to "Disco, madam!" at a wedding in Yemen, I have vowed during my trip never to regret doing something for fear of looking like a foolish foreigner. And so when the Chinese teens ask – no, beg – me to sing a song, I go along. True, they didn't ask for the marching bit, but I hoped it would add to the number. Judging by their wild reaction of claps, cheers and catcalls, I conclude that it did.
