The people we met in Xijiang were friendly and I never felt any animosity or distance. Here are some of them.

I had noticed that small girls had all their hair cut off, and I asked why. The answer was at it was to help the development of the brain. So I asked: How? Again a very clear answer: We all know that sunlight  makes Vitamin-D in the skin, and the brain will develope better with Vitamin-D. Well, I had almost no hair before I was two years old!

Most of the people we met were Uigurs and it was a totally positive experience. They are Muslims but that was of no consequense.They were friendly, smiling and polite. It was so nice to meet people with so different background and feel no problems or distance.
