Obama held a historic town hall with around 500 Chinese students in Shanghai Monday in which he discussed how the free flow of information actually makes countries stronger. The town hall was a more subdued affair than similar events in the States; as the New York Times noted, "the audience seemed handpicked by the government and many were members of the Communist Youth League, which is closely affiliated with President Hu Jintao."

But that doesn't mean there weren't plenty of smiles among the Chinese students who got a chance to greet the president. Check out some of the best moments below and vote for the most memorable photo from the event.
