Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

I went to the Mobility Roadshow 2008 in Coventry (this is where I live after all) and looked at the different types of wheelchairs, adapted cars and accessible travel on offer.

It was easy to get there - there were  accessible buses  from the  train station to the  site at Stoneleigh Park. 



My colleaque, Fiona, had a good time going on one of the action trikes -




Two guides offered me here at the stands which might be of interest to people  is the Access Guide for the National Trust (pdf ) and the new Rough Guide to Accessible Britain.

The National Trust protects and opens to the public over 300 historic houses and gardens and 49 industrial monuments and mills. This is a very useful access guide to those sites.

A quick skim of the Rough Guide made me realise it was not a comprehensive guide that I was hoping from the other other Rough Guides I have been using before but ideas for some great days out.

This guide is not available in the shops. To order a copy, go to: www.accessibleguide.co.u k
