Last year we had some employees in town from our Shenzen office.
One afternoon, as I was leaving for lunch, I passed three young ladies from the group standing under a tree, cameras ready, to take pictures of the squirrels gadding about a feeder put up there by one of the local co-workers. They seemed really amazed by the critters.
It is really odd, thinking of squirrels as exotic beasts worth taking pictures of, but there you go.
Oh, the squirrel feeder? Removed, because the fricking tree-rats were sneaking under car hoods and chewing on the wiring. Several cars suffered hundreds of dollars in electrical system damage.
