    1. Hi Richard, thanks.
      Yes, it was a really interesting trip.
      I’m good thanks, we’ve got two boys (4 and 1) so that’s keeping us busy. I hope you’re well – good luck for the coming season. JB

  1. You’ve taken some fantastic photos, I love the photo of the Eastern wall/tower of the forbidden city with the huge skyscraper behind. Tried to take that picture when I was there but only had my phone and it was hazy ( surpise ) such a contrast. Many thanks.
