For Greg McEnnally a traveller should be a pilgrim and not just a tourist, and the journey itself is just as important as the destination. With this appreciation of life the writer takes us into China - a place many of us may never visit - and provides us with a developing picture of this strident and yet enigmatic country. Having taught English for ten years in China the writer can depend on the hospitality of many of his former students and acquaintances as he takes advantage of the national holidays and tours the country. It is a country of contrasts; the wonderful companionship offered by ordinary Chinese set against the predatory taxi drivers; the brilliant architecture standing proud above the sea of rubbish that can be found alongside it. It is a growing country, young in geology and yet old in culture. Greg McEnnally suffers the rigours of overcrowded buses and trains to bring the reader - China.
Greg McEnnally has been teaching English in China for ten years. Prior to that he taught English in Indonesia for a year. In Australia he was a high school Maths and Science teacher and he also taught this in Papua New Guinea for three years. This background has given him some appreciation for other cultures. He loves to travel and while in China has availed himself of every opportunity to do so. This book is the result.
