Last night in China

Zembla, Zendu, Xanadu:
All our dream-worlds may come true.
Fairy lands are fearsome too.
As I wonder far from wiew Read,
and bring me home to you.
-Salman Rushdie-

Last night in China and tomorrow I'll cross border in Mo Han to Lao. O, can't wait anymore.. goodbye China!

A Third storyletter is published. Its includes feelings and moments from my time in Chengdu and from journey through Lijiang to Lugu lake. Thanks for Marnix for drawings, M.J. for Chinese names, Alec for editing and correcting my English for the letter! A Story in the letter is a fictitious tale from modern China. .

"Smell of spring"

Soft rain on a small street. Everything is still. Only two guys intheir raincoat drive with bicycles pass the post office. Roses aresmelling and smoke from a nearby restaurant is floating down the rainystreet. Nothing is happening, everything is still. But if you stand ina street you can feel and smell it. The air is full of magic.Something important is happening just here, just now!
