In 1982 Wang Yaping from the Chinese Writers' Association in Beijing toured 20 U.S. states with a camera, asking Studs Terkel, the Chinese American architect I.M. Pei, former heavyweight champion Muhammed Ali, and other Americans questions about what he saw. Since this was his first visit to the U.S., there was a lot that Wang did not understand, so both his viewpoint and his areas of ignorance present an interesting perspective.
