Last night was one of the best nights out I've had while in Chengdu. While in America I'm not a party girl, here in China (and back in Singapore) I went out more often. My group of friends and I went to a new place to us that gave free drinks to foreigners. One of the guys in the group started chatting with another group of people, and it came out that one of the girls was adopted from China.
Now, whilst in China, being adopted from China is a pretty big deal. We're not as common as you'd think here! Anyways, we're from different places in China and she looks kind of Thai, but we share a lot of frustrations about being here as a Chinese but not being able to speak very well. She's not from the same place in the States either. The bar was so loud we were shouting in each other's ear. Eventually, she asked what my name was.
She gave me the strangest look I ever saw before replying, "THAT'S MY NAME TOO!"
For a couple of seconds I didn't believe her. What are the chances of meeting another girl adopted from China in Chengdu with the same name? Every time another crazy similarity came out, we both freaked out a little bit more. The thing that sealed the deal though: we're both dancers.
Seriously, what are the chances?
