She's American, and studied Chinese in college in the States, which means that aside from being a good friend and companion, she's been invaluable when it comes to getting over the language barrier - when no native speakers are around, that is.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.
- Robert Louis Stevenson
