Sometimes, & from time to time, I would indulge myself by dabbling a bit with the local Beijinger New Papers. Being a successful foreigner and being married to a Chinese national did create quite a story. The newspapers and other agencies would bombard me when they are pressed to find individuals to tell a story with.
Global Times was always on the ball in the wee hours of the morning… pressing me for a write-up. I guess they could never understand that owning and working a bar is a full-time job.
Thank you Global Time.
PS: I lied!
