greetings from the people’s republic of china

Blimey. Beijing is Hot. It’s nearly 40 degrees, and I think I’ve developed some intestinal problems, which isn’t helping matters. The last few days have been wonderful – I’ve drunk fermented mare’s milk with a Nomad on the Mongolian Steppe, and bought myself a horse-head violin. Unfortunately it all ends tomorrow, but I’ve been taking notes and will be compiling a special report based on my activities over the last couple of weeks.

Sorry this message has been so short, but I really have go to the toilet.
