In part 2 of his “How I Became a Minor Celebrity in China” story (if you haven't read it yet, do it now, it's nuts), BuzzFeed's Matt Stopera actually ends up going to China to meet "Brother Orange", the guy who ended up with his stolen phone.
But that's even not the crazy part. I don't want to spoil anything, you should go read the whole thing for yourself. This quote is apt though:
I’m realizing the language and cultural barriers aren’t such a big thing anymore. It’s 2015 and this is the world we live in. I am so happy.
I almost can't believe BuzzFeed is home to one of the best stories I've ever read on the web. I was smiling the entire way through.
