This morning I found myself in a TV studio being interviewed, with the curator Aric Chen, for a 40-minute documentary about Beijing Design Week in which London was Guest City. It was an odd experience: sitting in a blue-screen studio (with plastic bags over our shoes to keep the floor clean) in an otherwise non-descript building in west Beijing with the anchor-woman asking us questions in Chinese and us replying in English. A bit stilted to be honest.
Then off to the airport with family for a week's holiday in Thailand. Feel stressed and not a little guilty at the amount of work I'm leaving behind, but looking forward to a break, some quality time with Liz and the girls, and some warmth.
