Apr 2, 2016 - Last day at Xiamen

Sad to né leaving the Koala hostel except for the fact I have to drunk alone it has been perfect. The bloke that run's it has been very helpful writing messaged for taxi driver's and he brought me a scotch last might.So now he tanks as one of my very best friends.

Mar 30, 2016 - XIAMEN

Am now in Xiamen after a great cruise up the Yangsy river chose up river because less crowded. Enjoyed it very much and was treated well as I was the only non Chinese speaker on board. They went out of their way to make me welcome. Food was good but I am lonely at the bar they don't drink much. Rushed over here to Xaimen because I have to fix up my visa seems a bit silly but I have to leave China then return to get thirty more days in China. So there is an island just of the coast here owned by Taiwan where I will go on the 2nd April return...

Mar 16, 2016 - Changsha day 3

Having a problem here in China they don't have pubs and the locals don't drink in public only the larger restruants sell beer. So it has been a very dry trip so far. Am out to try to rectify that tonight did a bit of investigation this morning and I think I have found a watering hole. It is in an alley off a street market and I found it just after I found the butchers shop would send a picture but facebook won't work and it is too complicated on this. Needless to say I can see why the buddhist's are vegitarians meat was hanging of the back...

Mar 14, 2016 - untitled2nd day at Changsha

Felt a bit like a goldfish in a bowl last night at a restaurant, all the staff and the owner were wanting a picture taken with me and to peel my prawns. Owner told me I was the first foreigner ever to eat in his restaurant. So he would not let me pay for the beer. As it was free could not let a chance go by and had a few so I got lost going home and had to get a taxi.

Apr 27, 2013 - Changsha

The first thing that is very apparent is the pollution in the air. There is a haze over the city something like the haze over Brisbane after the bush fires. It is quite shocking, I have been warned about it but it is very different when you actually see it. Now where do I start - the drive to Matt's house was, well, Ummmm, Eye Brow raising to say the least. Road rules are there really any here? Lanes what lanes - 3 lanes marked on the road but 5 lines of actual traffic, you push to get where you want, sometimes there is only a centimeter or...

Wow what a week. Absolutely chaos. Thursday Kadyn and I were involved in the Anzac day march with the Capalaba Cub Scouts, Kadyn looked great in his cub scout uniform with his great grandfathers' medals. After the March Belinda and the boys spent the afternoon at the park enjoying the great weather. I had to take a short drive to Toowoomba to have a client meeting to try and obtain a large corporate job for Puremotion. The client was very happy and will be booking the job with us.

Mar 17, 2010 - Final Days of Hunan

The last days of Changsha had two of the most memorable parts of my stay in China. One of them is the baby dinner I went to with ZhouTian and celebrating this little baby girl who was only one month old with a big dinner filled with many family and friends. It is an traditional custom, which reflects the times when it was really uncertain whether a baby would make it through the first month of life. It was just a big garage filled with tons of people and a cute little baby. Such a valuable thing. We got to the party in the mid-morning. We...

Mar 15, 2010 - Active Aging in Changsha

More Social Policy Investigations Coming Your Way: Active Aging! Everywhere in the world there are worries about what we need to do with the increasing amount of elderly people living in the world. In the U.S. we have the baby-boomer scare, and in Japan this is much worse as they have an extremely old society that's only getting older. There is a horrible scare about social security and pensions and health care and what happens when the elderly people use up all the resources. Through discussions with Candy and through discussions in my...
