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.

It was EU parliamentary week again in Strasbourg and there were no hotel rooms for love or money. Luckily my friend Berta, who is Mexican, was kind enough to agree to have me. She even gave me breakfast in bed one morning. I was so tired.

Berta, the best!

Anyway while I was there I managed to fit a visit to the EU Disability Intergroup meeting  where they were going to discuss a green paper on urban Transport. I put in a word for inclusive design so that they bear in mind that accessible transport is for the benefit of all. A speaker from the Danish disability group asked for accessibility to be holistic - to include door to door and information not just that the transport itself be accessible.

I was happy to get to have cous cous at my favourite little restaurant at the Esplanade. They only do that on Thursdays and I was there with Helen. It was also good to catch up on news with her.
