It has also given them a unique, spiritual homeland. China's artists have truly inspired new life into an area of Beijing, resurrecting the ghosts of the past while breathing in energy and innovation in the present.

    San Fermin - Iruña

    After a week hiking on the Pirinees we decided to celebrate my birthday in Pamplona. And what a wise decision it was, the whole city was dressed in red and white, all the bars were full of party people and in the streets sin took over. Even for those like us that don't like the bullfight scene, the spirit of San Fermin is about hot summer nights and dancing like there is no tomorrow, eh eh eh!
