Everybody loves Jenda
One thing Liz and I noticed is that as cute as we think Jenda Zoe is, our admiration is matched by the Chinese. Everybody wants to give her a couple of hugs--especially the "nai-nais"--the grandmas. Occasionally, when at McDonald's, people give her votive offerings of fries or nuggets on her tray, hoping the little golden one will answer their prayers. Many rub her head for good luck. On the train to Beijing people gave her fruit and nuts!
