Farewell

Many people are leaving, our agenda is packed with farewell parties.

Last Tuesday David and I organised an night walk for our friends who are leaving Beijing. Great walk in Hutongs that told us al about the night watch men during the Qing Dynasty (the last dynasty if you leave out the current Red Dynasty)

20% of arable land is too polluted for agriculture, CHINA GO GREEN

The author has been living in a village where in her school years there were water streams with lotus flowers but now none. Now cancer has hit 15% of the pollulation of her village….

As a result: China cannot maintain this pollution levels since over 20% of the arable land is to polluted, 50% of all open water to dive into, so China is buying land everywhere to get food for their people. In Ukraine as much as the size of Belgium, in Argentina the size of Luxemburg, in Peru 2 mountains in Myanmar complete forests….

So please don’t buy products that say made in China to save the world!
