As I was walking home from my office today, I saw a couple dozen students sweeping leaves into piles on the grass using wide brooms made of sticks. I saw a middle-aged man buzz by on an electric bike. I saw a girl walking back from the hot water station laden with large thermoses in each hand. And I realized: A couple months ago, all these things once seemed different and amusing. Now they just seem... normal. Am I losing my fresh eyes for China?
