Jeff Fuchs to headline “Explore” Series at Bookworm in Beijing
One of the very special 'lados' (muleteers), whose memories alone keep alive the ancient tales of life along the great trade routes
Delighted to be the opening speaker at the Bookworm’s Explorer Series this coming August 2011, in Beijing. Privileged to be able to share. Will be talking (and on occasion ranting) about two routes (and their precious people and memories) that certainly rank among the most arduous and hallucinatory journeys on the planet, the Tea Horse Road and the Tsalam (Nomadic Route of Salt)…and of course I’ll be plugging my favourite green leaf – tea.

The faces of the remaining traders and travellers, themselves are geographies of effort, gained upon the highest of highlands
