The China Clipper

Just back from China and as usual I feel totally charged. Not because I had a good rest but because I know for a fact that many people in China work very hard for a living and we are simply so lucky compared to them.

My supplier works 7 days a week from 10am in the morning up till 7 at night. Even after the building security officers had switched off the lights, he will switch on the single tube florescent light to tie up the loose ends. There is no rest and rest will be for 3 weeks in a stretch, one week before the Chinese new year and two weeks after that.

Trading has always been in my blood. Lawyering is a way of life. But being a merchant is something totally different.
