Trying to figure out people : If you meet a stranger, be nice to him. No matter if he/she does not repay in kindness. (Confucius talk). Sometimes it is hard, though. Expecially if the other person is a 'pain-in-the-ass-type'. Yet, others reciprocate. Best of them all: Tibetan folks in general. Kind, gentle, hospitable, smiles all over. Inviting you wherever and whenever they can.
