I live in Berkeley Ca. I have Chinese student neighbors. The day after school was closed due to the pandemic they left for home. They were able to complete their studies over the internet. I think they knew that there would be better care and control of the pandemic in China. They kept up the lease payments to the end of the lease, and had friends come and go from the apartment, even a cleaning lady. Now that things have settled down new Chinese students have arrived. It is a wonder to see them come and go, I have been here for 20 yrs, and every group is very quiet and respectful. Once in a while they don’t do as well as they thought they would and fail, their parents usually come and take them home, leaving behind in the trash the things they dreamed of using. Even the failures go back to China.
