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.

Tonight I spoke to an old classmate to whom I have not seen for over 25 years and we arranged to meet in December. I felt the years have not changed our relationship - she's still as efficient as ever, she told me what she was doing, what she's spending her time on and how she has no time till December. She did not ask me once what I was doing except to ascertain that I was not in UK for a visit.

I am bemused and curious as to know how to react. Shes coming to see me here, she would not entertain me meeting her in London and why was I not more assertive?

...but I also spoke to Sally today, I found her phone number in my old address book and called just out of curiousity. She was a student in Strrasbourg when I lived there and we fed her quite a bit and now when my son is in Brussels, I guess I hope she would do the same for him - give him some home cooking!

Maggie is someone else I got to know in Strasbourg - as an expat American family. We shared many pizzas together. Shes now back in Colarado but we catch up with family news.

People come in and out one's life however I guess I am not static myself
