Connections in Dallas I just landed from a three week trip to the USA, taking in Miami and Austin, with brief stops in San Francisco and Los Angeles. The last time I was here, was right at the end of my Cambridge University masters; and […]

Well, here I am back in my favourite blogging spot, Hong Kong airport, and it makes me realise that I have not been giving as much time of late to tapping away at the keyboard – or this keyboard at least. It’s probably quite dull […]

Moving House

Hopefully, in the coming days, life can return to something resembling normal. As soon as I landed, the race was on to pack my stuff up and move the mile or so down to Abe’s place near the Zhongxiao / Dunhua intersection. As ever, moving […]

Coffee Time

Written by . Filed under Made in Taiwan. Tagged . No comments.

I have just been sitting in the garden sipping on coffee that has been sitting in my room for eight years. That might not sound too apetising, but this bag of powder was bought from downtown Havana on my first really big solo adventure at […]
