Last evening I returned from a three weeks journey to China and Japan. This time I decided not to post anything during the trip, but instead take notes, and do the on-line work by and by once I am back home.
Besides meeting friends and family, the purpose of my trip was to deeper understand the roots of Chinese and Japanese calligraphy. Also, I wanted to explore how much of the once so rich Chinese culture survived the cultural revolution and the past decade’s vast economic and industrial changes.
To keep the time-line of the blog in order, I will set the posting dates approximately to the days I took my notes. So please scroll down, if you want to read my Chinese-Japanese Zen diary coming on-line by and by during the next week.
