I managed to finish the book, but never really got any traction. Likeable author with good writing skills; original travel group quickly showed itself as highly disfunctional. A series of sub-journeys, with different partner(s) or alone, made at different times after R & R in Beijing or New Zealand. Interesting observations on China and the Chinese often overshadowed by the members' "issues" or the regular (fear of and real) harrassment by local police.
