I attracted large crowds at Tiananmen Square. In communist China you don't want to be standing out and drawing lots of attention to yourself, especially in Tiananmen. There are thousands and thousands of people hanging out sightseeing. The place is huge. Members of the People's Republic of China's army paid me a visit. They were nice and cordial. I could hear the crackle of the secret police walkie talkies over my shoulder. Once they realized what I was doing, they too became instant fans of my work.
