About this blog

An opportunity to get a more in depth view of a rapidly evolving, hugely important country with a culture foreign to my own. The picture shows what awaited - one of my life's more rewarding experiences.

A smart friend once told me his motto when abroad, "not bad, just different." Hes right, but Im forever aware that my percpetions are shaped by my own origins. For that, I make no apologies, nor will I concede to political correctness.

I travel to engage and broaden the mind, and to amuse myself. Ill write for the same reason. Life, thinking and writing are all evolutionary so I await my contradictions with interest! One things for sure which is that nobody - not least the Chinese - understands China.
