The author and his wife, Susanna, after each had retired, decided to go on a tour of China, beginning from the end of January 2012. It was an open-ended tour with a loosely-planned itinerary. In the event, it took five months. They both came away with the feeling of having only scratched the surface of all the wonders there are to experience inChina. The more they explored, the more they realised there was to see and do.
Apart from the sights and sounds of ancient and modernChina, there was also the fascination of what living in China is like today.
Stuart McDouall recounts their journey in an impressionistic, episodic and selective way. He kept a hand-written diary of what he deemed to be noteworthy events and took over a thousand photographs to jog his memory. Many of these photographs are included in this book.
