A Quiet Night in Wai Yuen Part 4

Bodhicitta I’d never ridden in a Hung Syun before. I didn’t care to repeat the experience. The driver and the team leader sat up front. The rest of the team sat on the benches in the back of the flying truck. Without room for additional passengers, that left Jackie and I seated on the hard […]

In China, its greatest appeal comes from its sharp contrast with Confucian norms, with its emphasis on rigid social hierarchies and complex etiquettes. The West sees parallels with the knights-errant of […]
