Reliquum est, silentium

Thanks for the link! We're almost two years old, and honestly I thought I'd have exhausted all the "intersections between Pennsylvania and Asia" by now, but not the case.
I think it'd be good for Pittsburgh to fortify those "sister city" bonds with the Asian cities, since immigration to Pittsburgh from Asia is increasing.
As I said in the post, though, it doesn't look like the tie between Saitama and Pittsburgh is very strong anymore. Considering the relationship between Danang and Pittsburgh was allowed to wither, it made me wonder if Pittsburgh no longer pursued these bonds once its economy recovered. But, for what it's worth, Bill Peduto advertises for the usefulness of these sister city relationships, and an opening reception yesterday for the Saitama visitors was bursting at the seams with Pittsburgh residents, so all hope is not lost.
