I traveled up to Harbin today to give a talk at a symposium promoting travel to the U.S. The symposium was organized by the U.S. Foreign Commercial Service in Shenyang. The target audience was travel industry companies. About 300 people were there.
The theme was a pun. The literal meaning was “Discover America from the heart,” but if you say it with a southern accent, it can sound like “Rediscover America.”
There were a lot of speakers, and so not surprisingly, the schedule got backed up. I had to run out of the room as soon as I was done talking so that I could make the train back to Shenyang.
