Camera flashes were popping in Alameda Police Chief Mike Noonan’s office, which was packed Wednesday afternoon with more than a dozen giddy teens and their adult chaperones.

The group is visiting from Wuxi, China – one of Alameda’s sister cities – and their six-day Bay Area visit will include stops around Alameda and San Francisco and to at least one major university.
