Dozens of young Chinese returned to familiar surroundings when they arrived on Sunday at the Ocean All-Russia Children's Care Center in Vladivostok in the Far East district of Russia.

The 41 youths were among 1,570 youngsters between ages 9 and 14 from the Wenchuan quake zone who were invited to recuperate in Russia by then-Russian president Dmitry Medvedev in 2008.

It was still early in the morning on Sunday, but many Russian children had already lined up and were waving the national flags of Russia and China as they met a bus full of Chinese young people from Sichuan province. The greeting included hurrahs of welcome and national dances.
