ah, chinese people

Some Chinese people in the US act the same as the Chinese people in China. Which can be extremely annoying, especially when you’re trying to watch a movie but the Chinese lady next to you is chomping away on some crunchy, smelly snack in a very crinkly bag. Movie theaters in China tend to be more noisy with people talking, eating, and talking on the phone without too much regard for the moviegoer who’s actually really into the movie. But … this ain’t China.

No one sleeps outside here though, probably because they realize that sleeping in public places is not very safe and considered pretty weird here. Very unlike China, where you frequently stumble upon random people napping on planter edges or at their desks after lunch. Or even at the National Stadium (Bird’s Nest) in Beijing. I went to see the Olympic buildings for the architecture, but apparently some view the stadium seating as prime nap potential.
