  1. I don’t think it sounds odd at all. One thing I’ve wanted very much is to connect with tea farmers in Yunnan China. There would need to be some representative since the ethnic farmers wouldn’t easily communicate in English. But there are plenty of people in Yunnan who might want to do this, and have the ability.
