Leif Lonsmann in the group is a consultant of cultural exchange from Denmark, who helps to bring China’s culture to Denmark and vice versa. He visited China since the 1990s and this is his first time to Chongqing. He shared his thoughts on the trip with iChongqing. He said, “China is a mystery. Every time when I come I see something I don’t understand at all. But after meeting some people who explained to me, I would get new knowledge. I believe I will get new knowledge again after this trip.” Then he continued, “Chongqing is among one of the biggest cities in the world. The culture is extraordinarily great to me but mysterious. It will be surprises and surprises in the coming days.”
