I live in Beijing, a city of over 20 million people, with a history that dates back three millennia.

Beijing is also where China’s identity crisis makes itself most evident—the struggle to hold to its traditions, while attempting to shake them off in a race to become modern and Westernised.

It was also my own port-of-call when I first visited Beijing, on a month-long trip across China, last April.

I swigged Yanjing beer on the pavement at 3am with an English teacher from the UK, tried fried snake at Wangfujing with a Texan IT guy, dug into bowls of at a tiny noodle shop with a Chinese graphic designer.I am often the only brown face in a bar, a supermarket, the subway, or the street.
