Two excerpts

As In Manchuria lumbers along to completion, I’ll post excerpts as they appear in print or online. Here are two, via the excellent new China File site, produced by the Asia Society. The first sees me tracking down the remains of the Willow Palisade, and can be read here. The second pays a visit to Harbin’s one-of-a-kind International Sister Cities museum, and is here.

Do spend some time at the China File site, which officially launches in February, 2013. They’re bringing together an array of work by journalists, academics, and travelers.
