A much-needed drink at the Paulaner Brauhaus near the office with colleagues, combined with a liquid de-brief with Robin & Simon from the Royal Opera House re their training programme which seems to have gone well. Amazed at how constantly busy (and expensive) this German pub is. And it's not just Friday nights. Then off to the opening party of the Bookworm Festival which amazingly is upon us again; it seems months rather than a year ago. So lots of authors coming to Beijing (and Chengdu and Suzhou where there are two other Bookworm branches). Looking forward to catching some of the talks. Stay tuned.
