Cookbooks, swimming, haggis, China and smog

It has been a big eight months for (that would be me).

Trips to Switzerland (twice) for big watch shows; trips to China and New York to get prizes for the great book I helped produce, Sarogini’s Sri Lanka Food…

Trips to Belgium and Ireland for more work for the book; then a few weeks in “sunny” Scotland for the Commonwealth Games where I learned a LOT about swimming and diving. (and avoided haggis).

It was back home for a few hours and then off to steamy Nanjing China for the Youth Olympic Games….China put on quite a show.

Shame though the air quality in China is so poor….we certainly have it lucky in little old Perth.

Some great work too with Primo Life, Marque, Box, Fitness First and Ocean magazines…

And soon it will be time to ramp up the work for Annual 2015.

I’ve taken my camera pretty much everywhere I’ve been, so here are a couple of favourite pictures from Nanjing – this is wushu in action; the girl in the red is from Perth. The boats are on the river at Fuxi Miao, central Nanjing.
