CHINA-BEIJING-AFRICAN WIFE-AIDA YANG (CN)

Aida Yang plays Guqin, a seven-stringed plucked instrument, in her studio in Beijing, capital of China, March 7, 2013. "I feel that he is a good man, and I want to be with him." Recalling the first time Aida saw her husband two years ago in her hometown Freetown, the 26-year-old Barbie-like lady lost in sweet memory, "Language or distance is not a problem." This love at first sight unveiled when the Sierra Leone girl met with Yang Yan, a 58-year-old Chinese painter two years ago when Yang Yan traveled to Aida's hometown Freetown, Sierra Leone. Aida married to Yang Yan one month later and moved with her husband to China with the new name, Aida Yang. From then on, Aida Yang began her life in China and lived in Beijing together with her husband where Yang Yan had a big painting studio. Inspired by her husband, Aida started to take the traditional Chinese brush and draw on Chinese art paper. As her skills improved, the couple even cooperate on the same artwork as Yang Yan draw tree branches and Aida gives fingerprint in colour to make wintersweet flowers. In this very Chinese-decorated studio, Aida find herself fall in love with Chinese culture. Apart from painting, she has learnt to play Guqin, an ancient Chinese stringed instrument, and the art of Chinese tea-making while she had family guests visiting. Probably the biggest accomplishment she has achieved is that Aida is able to well handle the Chinese language, as she often says in Chinese with pride "I love my husband, and I also love China."
