I wrote this post back in February 2007. It was, I think, my first major post on the Chinese in this country and beyond. Since then I have written a number of posts. I have also visited China for the first time, a visit that is now a treasured memory.
This visit shows the open air restaurant down the street from our hotel in Beijing.
This night there was some form of celebration on, a very big group spanning many tables. The women being honoured visited tables for toasts. Others visited her and so it went on.
