A fine weekend!
September 16, 2012 - Hong Kong Island, China
We have all had a fine weekend - weather,music, food, shopping (?!) all of the highest quality!!   It all started with a stunning concert on Friday night in the Helsinki Concert Centre -an extraordinary building only opened twelve months ago. It too is sunk partly into the ground and is fundamentally a round building -concert in the round.  Our seats were behind the orchestra and we had a fabulous view!  The concert featured Brahms and Shostokovich and the orchestra and violinist were...

September 18, 2011 - Hong Kong Island, China
Life in Hong Kong has been a little too amazing. A dream in fact, we have swam in a leisure pool and played tennis, relaxed under umbrellas on sun loungers, reading books. However I am slightly worried that I have become too Chinese to appreciate it. In HK, its simply not acceptable to spit in the streets (no longer necessary now that I've finally rid myself of the plague I've hosted since Beijing), take a pee in the nearest bush, barge your way to the front of queues and onto the subway...
