China continued in my veins until 1999 when my twin sons passed their A levels and I was so happy and excited that I signed up for a charity bike around the Great Wall in aid of the UK charity Mencap http://www.mencap.org.uk/ As a nurse, cyclist and lover of China, the combination was too good to miss.
A lot has happened in the past 11 years. I completed 3 charity bike rides, all in the mountains around Beijing. I cycled over 1000km and raised over $20,000. Now I continue to learn Mandarin and spend part of my year in Zhuhai, a beautiful coastal city in Mainland China, close to Hong Kong and Macau.
I hope you enjoy following my blog as I continue to discover my Chinese roots 🙂
Wow! didn’t remember that I had created a WordPress acount back in 2010 and now that I am doing a Masters Degree at City University, London, I’ve rediscovered my site. I still visit China but not as much as before but I still love all things Chinese! My Masters consisted of 8 modules 5 of which I have already successfully completed:
Electronic Health Records
Information for Decisions in Healthcare
I still have to complete Research Methods, Telemedicine and Knowledge Management. I’ve had great fun doing this course and I’m staggered by how much there is to know. My heros are :
Prof Dasgupta from Kharagphur IT
Prof Basu from Kharagphur
and many more
