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.

When I was in London on Friday, there were no trains out of Euston back to Coventry. I was at Liverpool  Street  Station  so I stayed there  to get  something to eat. there was a Japanese restaurant, sushi bar called  Moshi Moshi. I was disappointed because all their stools were too high for me which means I couldn't just pick off the bar. The tables were too narrow to get a wheelchair in - and I had to order from a menu. Was I disappointed? Yes I was.

Here is the weather report from Virgin train  today -
