China: the Inaccessible Country.

I'm not sure how long ago it was that I approached various people in China; but to date have had a little response. I have heard tales of firewalls and censoring, but whatever the reason I have made no progress. So, regretfully, because I preferred to organise such things myself, I approached a few travel agencies who specialise in trips to China. I asked them to give me an estimate for travel and accommodation in Khotan; Suzhou; Shanghai and then Guangzhou. But today I received an email back from one: 'due to the recent riot in Xinjiang Region, it's unsafe to go to Khotan'.

It is beginning to seem like this project is jinxed.

Sorry, Clare.

Sort of sounds like the name of town in China, but perhaps it should be spelled slightly differently, Jhinxed, maybe?
