Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China Xu Hong, boasted of taking a piece of “Bajan” with him as he ended his Barbados 19-month assignment last week when he and his wife Wei Bo said farewell to friends, embassy staff, Government officials and private sector contacts at a lavish cocktail reception at Savannah Hotel.
The ways in which the Chinese ambassador immersed himself in Barbadian society were captured in a video showing him enjoying Kadooment Day, swimming with the turtles, attending cultural shows, hiking and simply enjoying Barbados.
He said this island was special as he thanked all the friends and others who had extended true Bajan hospitality to him.
