Nixon

Shouldn’t Nixon be remembered as a president with vision, who signed the Shanghai Communiqué in 1972? 
When I visited Shanghai on a business trip in 1985, Jinjiang Hotel was still the top hotel in town where the communiqué was signed. 
At time – 1985, Yizang was doing his master degree in Shanghai. So we made plan to meet. I haven’t seen him in years .. since I left Beijing in 1979. It’s Yishi who found his phone.
At that time, the hotel didn’t let local Chinese in.  Back then there wasn’t a single cell phone, I waited in the room for a long time for him…. …  Finally wised up, went to the front gate to get him.  It’s pretty ugly.  How much has changed since doesn’t need me to blab here.
