Once a month Owen, Gerry's wandering son, talks about his life and work in China. After a childhood spent in Switzerland, followed by a decade travelling and working all over the world, Owen now calls Kunming in Southern China home. In his reports he shares his views on his new home and talks about the pleasures and difficulties of adjusting to a foreign culture. We hear a lot about China and the Chinese these days but what is life really like there? Where is this country with a 5000 year history heading? Do the Chinese really work day and night? Is Chinese food as good as they say? Owen has the answers.
