Alhambra and its Chinese sister city Rizhao had a meaningful conversation during the production of Chinese Central Television's talk show "City 1+1" on Jan. 11. Through satellite transmission, Alhambra Mayer Stephen Sham, USC professor Qin Si-zhao and Yale professor Wen De-an interacted with Rizhao's city officials and local representatives from the Los Angeles studio. The 45-minute episode features an extensive introduction of both cities' history and culture, meaningful dialogues between city officials, and a gift exchange at the end of the show.
