As they say, and this eBook proves, that you are separated from others through just six [...]

    2. A sort of mini-biography of Ian's time in China. He has lived in Hong Kong and Shanghai but has made it his mission to visit every province of China. An entertaining view of first impressions of China by an English expat. Currently living in Hong Kong myself, there is a lot I can identify with and I think it will encourage me to visit other parts of China - a fascinating country. Perhaps it could have been edited slightly better but a gentle, fun read nevertheless.
