Masao Miwa, Lived 50 years in Asia
Yes. I have lived on and off about half my time in China over the last 20 years. I have never been mistreated and because I am a senior, I find young Chinese very, very respectful and helpful.

过去的20年中,我有一半的时间在中国生活。先说下,我是一个老年人,这期间从未受到过虐待,而且我发现中国的年轻人非常尊重他人和乐于助人。

When I lug my baggage up or down stairs, someone will come to my aid to help, boy or girl, whoever thinks I am having a problem. When I board a bus or metro, most, not all, young people will give up their seat to you. Sometimes, sometimes a bus conductor will tell someone to give up their seat…….

当我携带行李上下楼梯时,无论男女都主动帮忙搬运行李。当我坐公交车或地铁时,大多数(不是全部)年轻人都会主动让座。有时公交车司机会建议乘客让座。

When in China, my home base is Shenzhen, Shenzhen is a relatively new city with an average age of citizens around 30 or so. To get around, seniors can get a ‘senior card’. Remember I am not a Chinese citizen. With that card, I can ride the bus or metro for free. All theme parks are free, and once in a while there are special events for seniors.

在中国时,我基本就是在深圳,深圳是一个相对年轻化的城市,人们平均年龄在30左右。老年人都有一张老年卡。即使我不是中国公民,也是有的。带着老年卡,我可以免费乘坐公共汽车或地铁。还可以免费游览所有的主题公园,偶尔还会有针对老年人的特殊活动。
