Nik Stanoshek @feisnik tweeted from Beijing that he had lost his wallet and passport at the Beijing airport on his way home from his marriage to beautiful Yanfei in Hunan province.
I retweeted his distress call and to my surprise it was answered, not by an expat, but by @winserzhao a travel agent in Beijing just getting his business off the ground.
Winser fetched Nik from the airport and tended to him like famiy until his credentials were restored.
That was in October of last year.
Today he sent out another distress call: His wife, who I met in GZ when she successfully interviewed for her immigration visa to America, was finally on her way to join her husband. But, she was stopped from getting in the plane because it was routed to America via Taipei and she had no visa for Taiwan. Her phone was out of power and her husbands computer briefly went on the fritz, but several calls, tweets and interventions and she was back on her way to Colorado and a reception ceremony with her beloved.
