I don't usually use Alaskankangaroo to link to my other writing on the Web, leaving that to my writer's site--bethgreenwrites.com. 

But I thought it might be interesting for readers here to take a look at the travel article I've written about Foshan, the Chinese city that Dan and I have lived in for most of our time in China.

You can find the link to my article on eChinacities.com here: http://www.echinacities.com/guangzhou/city-life/guangzhou-s-beautiful-neighbour-foshan-city.html

We first came to Foshan in 2006, fresh and new to Asia.  We left for awhile but came back in 2011 to remeet old friends and rediscover the city. And has it changed! Foshan In the past six years Foshan has grown, modernized and beautified.  Take a look at the article, and browse through some of my old blogs about it on Travelpod.com, to learn more about this fascinating, changing city.

The guest blog mentioned in our last post has turned into a regular gig blogging over at Novel Adventurers. Beth will now be writing about books and travel at http://noveladventurers.blogspot.com/ every other Wednesday. 

But that's not the only day to stop by--the Novel Adventurers are a group of talented, intrepid writers who share stories of their travels every weekday.  The group includes experts on South America, India, Iran, Italy and more!

Today she starts her regular blogs with a piece on a detective book series set in Thailand. When Dan and Beth were living on Koh Tao the year before last, Beth devoured these books by John Burdett about Bangkok detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep.  Go on over to the blog to check out the full story.

Happy Reading!
Today, AlaskanKangaroo's Beth blogs over on Novel Adventurers (http://noveladventurers.blogspot.com/) about a festival that we came across by accident when traveling through the minority villages of southern Guizhou Province, back in 2009. 

If you've got time, take a look both at Beth's post, and also at the other posts written by the site's bloggers. They're all novelists who love travel--and, of course, adventure--and they tell great stories there every weekday.
