April 15th #chinadiary

A speaking engagement first thing, which Carl makes very little mention of, perhaps indicating how confident he is in his abilities by now. Then he is a pillion passenger on Dr Hemingway's motorbike - to the amusement of the onlooking Chinese people .They visit two jails, one new and an old one, which is "the filthiest, lousiest hole that I ever care to see." The bikers had two spills on the return journey and back to Taiyuanfu unscathed for another talk "to the foreign community in a little rather informal meeting."
