I arrived in Hong Kong last night after my book tour in crowded New Zealand and busy Australia (19 interviews, 9 talks in 5 cities…and IN 7 DAYS…!!!)…

My body has been ‘’seasoned” by the cold winter in New Zealand, and by Australia’s beautiful spring and Hong Kong’s hot summer, and our minds have been educated and moved by the people’s love of China Witness.

Touring still touches me so deeply –  when I walked dead tired into my Hong Kong hotel I was reinvigorated by a copy of TIME OUT lying on the bedside table with many other magazines, inside it was a review of ‘China Witness’ by Edmund Lee.

I was so moved, not only by the thoughtful timing, but also by the understanding of the review which talks of my passion for the real China and my feelings for those Chinese Witnesses who have told me their hidden lives.
