Compassion dictates the sick be brought to the United States and immediately be given housing, food, drink, cell phones, automobiles, cash and of course free medical care.

Wasnt planning a visit anyway.
I "visited" 44 years ago - it had a lasting impression on me.
In all fairness ... not long ago, my son lived in Shanghai for 3-4 years and visited many of the countries in Asia.
His favorite - Vietnam. Nicest people, scenery and food.
