Returning to the winds, a shy sun and some sputtering snow flakes here in northwestern Yunnan from Shanghai and an inspired ‘2011 Shanghai International Literary Festival’. Huge thanks to the entire team at “M on the Bund”, particularly the energy bundle that is Michelle Garnaut. Another huge thanks and applause to Tina Kanagaratnam from AsiaMedia for poise, calm and enthused passion.
A post of Amber Mizerak’s interview with me about – no surprises here – the Tea Horse Road’s eternal importance here. Will be leaving soon to source teas in Xishuangbanna…and collecting the odd tale I can dig up on that sacred green leaf.
