Finally, an enjoyable travel book about China. Polly Evans' book about her travels in China a few years ago is lots of fun. She isn't trying to do or be anything like so many other mediocre travel books, but just trying to see China. She doesn't whine too much, nor get into too much detail about buses and trains (although she barely stays out of this trap) and she is funny.
Someday I'm going to make a living traveling around Asia with children and writing books about it. With recipes.
