The interesting conversation I am going to tell you happened last summer when I was traveling to Inner Mongolia on the train. It was a 12 hours exhausting journey. At first, I played games on my cellphone to kill time but the battery soon ran out. After staring at the monotonous view outside the window for about 2 hours, I finally noticed the man sitting beside me.
He was around 50 years old and part of his hair had turned grey. He was wearing suit pants and a white shirt, just like most senior citizens in China. This article is from Laokaoya website. But what caught my attention was the book he was reading. It was written in Mongolian. So I asked him whether he was an indigen there and then our conversation began.
Learning that I was a tourist who was going to spend my vacation in his hometown, he showed great enthusiasm. He put the book down and started introducing the local customs and tourist attractions. The most interesting part of this conversation is that he said in Inner Mongolia, the host would cut the tail of the roasted sheep and presented it to the most honored guest. The tail, which consisted of a lot of fat, would be regarded as an unhealthy food outside, but it was the most precious gift there, which contradicted my perception.
I really enjoyed this conversation. Thanks to him, I was able to find many cheap but delicious restaurants and avoid making misunderstandings with the locals.
