Tian Guangfeng was the Ambassador extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the People’s Republic of China to Guinea-Bissau, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Mozambique, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste and the Ambassador of the Department of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.The sun came and went at the edge of the sky.Standing on the sea, looking to the west, a piece of orange sunset dyed the sea red, rows of waves with red xiaguang, like a fire dragon on the sea kept rolling, beating, red and bright.At the end of the day, people go out of the office and walk in the yard in twos and threes.The dogs, who had been shut up all day, were very glad to be released, and ran back and forth in a delightful manner, wagging their tails round the strolls.Night had not yet fallen, but the temperature was not so hot.Standing under the mango tree, the smell of sea breeze wafted by the wind.The mango trees close to the courtyard wall bore rich fruits, and from time to time there was the sound of ripe mango falling to the ground.Suddenly there was a knock on the door, and several alert dogs gave angry growls.Everyone stopped and looked at the embassy gate.Moments later, the guards ran up to say that the Director of protocol at guinea-Bissau’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs asked to see him.”There must be something urgent about this sudden visit.”I thought as I made my way to the embassy gatehouse and ordered the dogs to be locked up.As soon as I opened the door of the reception room, The director of protocol came up to me with a smile on his face. He held my hand tightly, like an old friend I hadn’t seen for a long time.The director of the embassy opened the door first. He said that there was nothing urgent and he was just passing by after work. He hoped that the embassy would give him two Onions and that some friends would visit his home this evening.So it is, such a simple thing, is never encountered or heard of things.I warmly invited him to sit in the drawing room and asked the cook to select some good Onions.The director was very honest. He insisted on taking only two Onions, not one more.After seeing the director off, I stood under the mango tree, laughing more and more at what had just happened, and feeling a little strange at the same time.Maybe this is the difference between Chinese and African culture, or civilization.The two continents have bred different civilizations, cultures and customs, which have led to different ways of thinking.Africans are simple and honest people who don’t take anything very seriously.As far as they are concerned, what’s yours is mine and what’s mine is yours.They are very friendly to the Chinese people and have witnessed with their own eyes the support and assistance provided by the Chinese government and people to support the liberation of Guinea and after independence. They regard the Chinese people as the best and most reliable friends.So it’s only natural to ask for anything at the Chinese embassy, and two Onions aren’t expensive at all.It has been 17 years since this happened. Although the traditional culture of Africa is still alive today, it is also undergoing changes under the impact and influence of various civilizations in the world.Today’s commodity economy and cultural exchanges have caused a great impact on traditional customs in Africa, and people’s way of thinking has begun to change, especially the original way of living and living habits are also changing, some of which have been replaced by modern lifestyles.However, I still like optimistic, simple, everyday idle, casual, do not know what sorrow for the black African brothers.– the END — source | the author into Africa “| Tian Guangfeng picture editing | | network propylite diplomat said
