AdeleiTeillana : It's not that surprising that all of this happened. The Chinese are obsessed with westerners, white people in particular (yes, that's racist, but it's true.) I live in China and people act like this around me even though I'm not a celebrity - not quite to this extent, of course, but people stare at me every time I go out, try to take my picture, get so excited and giggle uncontrollably when meeting me - all because I'm white. I hate it so much. There's a term called "white monkey jobs". Chinese people will literally hire white people just to be present at certain events to make it look like they have foreign influence or interest in their business. They will provide free transport to an event, provide your meals, hotels, etc. and you just have to show up, sit at the head table and be white. Rich families will hire foreigners to come live with them for a few months just to help their kid's English improve. One Australian friend of mine was hired to go on vacation with a bunch of families with kids - she had the most beautiful (expensive) hotel room and had to accompany them to all their activities, like cleaning out Panda cages at a zoo. They just wanted a white English speaker to supposedly help their kids' English and look good in photos to attract more families to come on the trip. I've never done any of this type of thing though, I hate even going out to go to the store, the way they treat me. And copyright and privacy mean nothing here - so if you let them take your picture, you never know where it could wind up. You really could be part of an advertising campaign for something and have no idea.
