Norway!

After Worldcon75 in Helsinki, Rob and I flew to Norway and boarded a Hurtigruten passenger-carrying cargo ship called the Vesteralen to spend a week traveling down the coast. Highly recommended – especially Trollfjorden. Photos here.

China!

Rob and I are back from our ten-day China adventure. We stayed in Shanghai with my cousin Charline and her husband Dave. As well as embracing the sci fi Pudong skyline, the Bund and the Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre, we hopped on a bullet train to Beijing where we managed to visit Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City and stand on the Great wall at Jinshanling. Amazing! Photos here.

As a counterpoint to the last post, here is a pic of myself with friends Isobel and Kathryn taken in Cairo eleven years ago.and here is me sitting in the Cairo Coptic district. My eyebrows were much bushier and my face thinner in 1997. Also, that may well be my actual natural hair colour.
