So your in a rather and famous Beijing Duck restaurant. You’re feeling good. The food and company around you are cool. Then the person opposite you stands up and collapses on the floor. Oh dear. But happily she was fine on the end. The restaurant staff also brilliant!

Sure Shangri la does exist – near Tibet – I was there!


I reckon that Gilbert and George exist here in Beijing as hotel managers but oddly enough Dutch! Saw them this evening behind the check in desk. … grey suits, walk and all! In a posh hotel here in ‘Peking’.
