It’s because I choose to trust the Chinese people.
I’ve told my best friends that I never drink with strangers.
I cannot trust a stranger to look out for me if I drink
too much, and I wouldn’t feel emotionally obligated
to do the same with someone I didn’t know well.
If I drink with you, there has to be a relation of
trust and true kinship. We have to know that
in our hearts there exists a genuine concern
for each other, and we express that with
honest loyalty. I drink with 2 people:
my family and my Chinese friends.
