Welcome to Foreign Correspondent.
This is the diary of a foreign journalist working in China.
Over the last 18 months, my assistant and I have travelled across the
country, from Heilongjiang to Guangdong, from Zhejiang to Xinjiang.
The idea of this blog is to bring you a running commentary of what
life is like for journalists in China and hopefully entertain you with
some of the characters we meet along the way.
There will be a time lapse of a few days before we post each day’s
diary. This is to allow my newspaper to publish my articles first –
they are my employers, after all.
Each post will appear in English and Chinese. I hope you enjoy them,
and please do leave comments so we can improve our work.
