I've just spent a long weekend in Sydney viewing the amazing baby of an ex-member that some of you may remember. Also drank large quantities of beer, ate steaks and seafood, went to a couple of beaches and Opera-in-the-Park on Saturday evening. Bloody hot on the first day [39C] but comfortable after that [28C].…Continue
Carrying on our literary theme, but on a somewhat higher level, I started reading this yesterday evening - one of my Christmas presents. I've only got a few chapters in, but so far I'm impressed.
Inside the front cover were are the extracts from reviews, such as:
"Multi-layered and masterful. Suspend your disbelief, flow along with this wonderful book"
Guardian [those naughty paedophiles]
"Reads as China's Midnight…Continue
I reached 69 over the weekend. No big party this year, but I’m glad to see that people are still looking at the photos from previous parties. I was serenaded by a Filipina Lady, drank beer with a Russian Lady in La Casa, dinner with the village girls, but one table full hardly constitutes a party.
Gifts included a very interesting book - How Music Got Free – the story of the mp3 , plus some regulation flowers.
I’m told that I’m too old to have an Employment Contract, so now I…Continue
I liked Buffalo Springfield, but never though he was the best part of the band, and I was never keen on CSNY, but his solo albums were great. Starting from Everybody Knows This is Nowhere with the early trio, to my personal favourite Rust Never Sleeps. Just about any of his stuff with Crazy Horse.…Continue
It's about the same length as Heather's, but the similarity ends there. I'm up to Chapter 20 of 24 and still no sex scenes. It has the snappy title of "Comprehensive Transport Study Enhancement - Main Text". If you get the choice then read Heather's instead.
The other difference is that I'm getting paid to read this one.…Continue
Only 90 minutes from Shenzhen by train now - worth a long weekend at least.
These are sandstone mountains, so look very different from the Guangxi plateau limestone. But beware, you will meet a lot of steps, many narrow and worn. The boat trip is worthwhile, and the cable car up too, but don't buy the return ticket if you plan on seeing the female stone. More details available if anyone is interested. The album is here:…Continue
We got there by flying through Bayannur – no I’d never heard of it either. We had a couple of trips out of the city.
First we went pony riding on the grassland, but not much grass though plenty of sunflowers. The ponies had been well-trained to ignore any signals from the reins or the legs and just follow the horse in front. Also the stirrups were not adjustable, so some of us had our knees hitting our chins, while others couldn’t reach them. Bloody expensive too, but still…
We based ourselves at Yan’an in Shaanxi, which is about two hours north of Xi’an by high speed train. It’s a famous town in Communist Party history – where the Long March finished – but we didn’t see too much of that. The main point was to see the waterfall.
We hired a car/driver for a day and off we went to the Yellow River, which is brown from all the silt it picks up cutting through the loess plateau. So below you can see the river above the falls, then below the falls, then at the…Continue
For family reasons my son’s summer trip was brought forward by three weeks so I wasn’t able to make my usual plans. . I managed to rearrange my times out of the office so we could go on a brief trip to Sanjiang this week. Of course all the high speed train tickets from Shenzhen and Guangzhou had been sold, so we took the overnight sleeper to Guilin with vague plans about how to get on from there. Alas the dining/drinking car has been discontinued, so it wasn't as much fun as five years…Continue
