its was at a banquet 3 days ago in the rainbow hotel here, when the 59th men's bodybuilding championship was over, we all went there to attend the banquet. one guy invited me to sit at their table, and i thougnt it was a good idea coz they r from finland and estonia. but at the table, they dont talk a lot, its strange that all guys at the  tables around us r talking,laughing, but we only talk little. i wished i had agreed to sit with those spanish guys or some really kind guys from irain or brazil. at least they r not so damly quiet. i wonder if its racial prejudice? i just couldnt figure out why they r so quiet. but seems they r friendly coz they gave me present,well, i m really confused:-(

Base on your description, I don;t think what you experienced was racial prjudice

Maybe by luck, you were sitting with a bunch of introverts. People who prefer Introversion tend to focus on the inner world of ideas and impressions....they are reflective people.
Did you initiate any conversation with them? If you did, how did they respond to your topic? Were they relaxed or tensed?

Kind of off the topic...

That's IFBB Pro Mr. Universe which every year gets held in a different country.

But do you know if China (or any of its provinces) hold their own body building contests?

Again, off topic. If you know, much appreciated.

glad u said that, thunderbird

hei, thunderbird, i m so glad that u thought it was not racial prejudice, actually i didnt ask many questions, i just asked when they fly back and they told me one week later, and when i asked what they were going to do in the following days one of them said that they dont know, and another kind one asked whether i was willing to be their guider in shanghai, i didnt agree coz i didnt have enough time. and then not many talk with other guys except one finnish judge and one estonian investor. thats all.
