[China Daily] — Sharing a common wealth – Great Read!

When Alix Honore stepped off the plane in Beijing she was completely overwhelmed, not so much by the 20-hour flight, the transfer and stop off, or the idea that she, at 19, was about to embrace a culture and education system so different from her own, but more so by the size of the airport.

But Honore arrived in 2005. Beijing International Airport’s Terminal 3, like the Bird’s Nest, was just a blue print and Athens rather than Beijing was still considered the Olympic city. Things have changed dramatically.

Honore comes from the Commonwealth of Dominica. It is an island in the Caribbean and has one of the smallest populations in the world. It is an island that often lives in the shadow of its namesake, The Dominican Republic, so much so that “not to be confused with the Dominican Republic” reads high on its encyclopedic definition

Honore often finds herself explaining to her classmates where her island home is situated. They simply haven’t heard of it before….full story@chinadaily.com
