My students sometimes have family or friends visiting from Japan. I like to invite them to my house for what I call an "American Home Tour". A few years ago Tony and I had a "Chinese Home Tour"during a trip to Beijing. With our tour group we were invited to walk all around the home, then sat down and were invited to ask questions about Chinese life. I do exactly the same thing in my American Home Tour. It's very interesting to see how people live in all parts of the world. Always when people come together, friendship results.
