One door on a Chinese souvenir shop is partially open so you stick your head in, calling out in Chinese, "Hello? Is anyone here?" A Chinese man comes out from the back of the shop and asks if he can help you. You ask in Chinese, "What time do you open?"

As you are browsing, you ask him why so many of the Chinese shops are closed and after a brief explanation, you can't help but feel horrible!! You wonder why your hometown doesn't do this.
