Yes, it’s time for a love-in. It’s gonna be a bit Chinese, a bit Scottish, a bit Australian – a bit gooey. Especially the very cute seagoing baby kangaroo. So, here goes…
CHINA: You remember the guest posts I had from China about the bureaucratic manoeuvres around getting married and climate change, crispy silkworms & outside toilets in Beijing. Well, our Beijing correspondent, Fuxingman, now has his own blog. It’s Life in China and other Stories – The Adventures of Fuxingman. I like his recent post on spoiling it for the locals – about an all-you-can-drink stew bar – unlimited booze. The concern is that if expats discover it, the normal rules of restraint may come under some considerable strain. Expats like Fuxingman. Have a look.
SCOTLAND: For matters esoteric, arty and tangential in Edinburgh, I like to follow the Comely Banking Crisis (crazy name, crazy guy). I commend it to you.
AUSTRALIA: And here’s something that’s just so gold-darned cute, dagnabbit! It’s a Western Grey Kangaroo joey frolicking and paddling on the beach at Busselton, Western Australia. The video is from Lispud here, though I first saw it here. Is this what life is like where you are Baino?
