Out of all the places I've been to, China was the biggest culture shock -food, mannerisms, language. China is fascinating - so rich in culture and history and I was continuously discovering something unbeknown and foreign to me. It somewhere I can't explain, you have to see for yourself really.

The 798 District is the art district in Beijing. Everything from painting, sculpting, building.....you name the process, it's being done. It reminded me of walking into a fully active art college - open doors venting out a studio where someone's spraying, the sounds of saws and drills from another studio, someone taking their work outside to dry off, someone taking a fag break..... It is an interesting concentration of design and art
