Coming out of hibernation...

Okay, as winter descends we are supposed to slip into hibernation.. but being the contrary individual that I am, I am choosing the depth of winter to jump back into the blogging ring.

I haven't been idle. 

For the past six weeks I have been up at the crack of dawn to do the early morning news on China Radio International. 

This involves a 75 minute commute from my home in Beijing's "trendy" East End, to a godforsaken location way, way out west... 

As commutes go, this one is a positive horror story..

And at the end of it, I have to run a gauntlet of three wheel suicide merchants - Nokia N95 vid to come - before reaching the sanctuary of my office.

I expect to get back into the writing "groove" in the next couple of weeks and links to published material will be posted here.

Feel free to contact me with story ideas, things you'd like to see on the blog, or even job offers!

But do come back.

This is going to become something of a busy blog.
