Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping (Front, C) and his old friends pose for group photos in Muscatine, a small city in Iowa, the United States, Feb. 15, 2012. Xi joined dozens of ordinary Americans for tea at a local house owned by his old friend Sarah Lande here Wednesday. Most of the participants at the tea reception were Xi's old acquaintances back from his 1985 visit, when Xi, then a local official from China's northern province of Hebei, visited Iowa as a member of an agricultural exchange delegation, and stayed with a local family in Muscatine to better understand Iowan farm life.
