Before I start I want to say that I have been following the website for a few months, but I never got around posting until now (I found it when Ryan Davis died and now I am at episode 132 of the P4 endurance run). So I know it seems weird to be a first poster with this message, but I do intend to be sticking around (although I don't know how active).
I went to Xian this christmas and a chinese girl that I met on the internet showed me around for the days I was there.
Everything went ok and I did enjoy my time. However, in the last day there she asked me what do I think of the city, and my response was:
"I like the city. There's lots of beautiful temples, the food is good, and the people are nice. It's just too bad you are all communists".
That last sentence is where I fucked up. She then got a straight face and asked me "What's wrong with being a communist?" And I didn't know what to
say. I was quiet for a few seconds and then I said that I'm joking and changed the subject.
Everything seemd to be fine after that, but I can't help but feel that I offended her. Do you think I was maybe too insensitive about it in a way?
I'm still in contact with her and I don't know if I should apologise or let it be.
