PORT ANGELES — Seventeen high school students and five chaperones are enjoying the hospitality of the Chinese despite tensions between United States and Chinese governments, a relative said Monday.
Governmental tensions escalated Sunday following the midair crash of a U. S. Navy surveillance plane and a Chinese fighter.
But the students and educators have been treated well by their Chinese counterparts, said Karla Snyder, daughter of chaperones Kevin and Linda Snyder.
