China - 4 - The Album

Among my souvenirs....





This selection of pictures complements the preceding three blog pieces, roughly in a sort of chronological order, telling my Story of China....

This time, I will offer no commentary, just thanks to all those who made it possible....  

So enjoy the pictures....































































































































































































































































So, thanks to Hannah and Cameron, without whom we would have been very very lost, and thanks to Amanda, who looked after me; thanks to the Poets of the Late T'ang, who kept me company; thanks to Michael Wood, whose brilliant series The Story of China came just at the right time to help me know something of the background; to Mo Yan and Yu Hua whose writings have added to my understanding of the contemporary world; to Yimou Zhang (and Christopher Doyle) whose Hero (2002) is one of the most beautiful films ever made.... 









And, of course, thanks to 









Without which mindlessness would mean nothing.

And, naturally, as well, to:








Whose pictures are so much better than mine......
