About this blog

Have you found paradise? I have. Kind of.

This blog is as much about staying put in one place, as it is about travel around south-west China's Tibetan borderlands of Yunnan.

I first traveled to south-west China more than 12 years ago, set up a project with Red Cross after a huge earthquake in Yunnan, and now am living in a large old house in the ancient old town where the quake occurred.

Most days I am here: hanging out with friends, gardening, sitting, thinking, drinking cups of tea and coffee, reading, writing, living.
