Aubergines await in China

Posted by Sandy Knapp Feb 18, 2010

Well, tomorrow is the big day for  going to China! If I can get through today  with Darwin’s  Birthday lectures and all the loose ends to tie up here at the NHM, it will be a  miracle.

 

Jin Xiu and Tiangang will meet me “outside” Beijing Terminal 3 – hmmmm  – I hope I find them! We then go straight to another part of the airport to fly  to Guangxi, bypassing completely freezing cold Beijing. Aubergines  await.

I'm Sandy Knapp, a botanist here at the Museum. I'm travelling in China to study the origins and domestication of aubergines with my colleague Wang JinXiu from the Institute of Botany in Beijing. Let's see what happens.
