Dear Mr. Cameron,
Cc: Family and Friends,
“Avatar! Avatar!” sing out the ladies at the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park souvenir stands. They are hawking large holograph photos of majestic karst mountains.
I hadn’t the foggiest notion why Avatar would be an integral part of the sales routine. My best guess was that even here, in Hunan Province, far, far west of the modern, affluent cities on the east coast of China, even here in the Wulingyuan Scenic Area the local vendors are aware of recent popular cultural events.
Then I did a little research.
