Branching out to Mainland China

Since my 2013 trip to China I’ve been facing quite a dilemma – should I writing about Mainland China appear on this site about Hong Kong, or does it belong elsewhere?

As a firm believer in “Hong Kong is not China” mixing the two topics together on one site feels wrong – but the other hand, I already maintain enough websites.

So I’ve taken the pragmatic route and instead of creating a new site just to cover Mainland China, you’ll find it all in the one place. Enjoy!
