Snow overnight!

Snow overnight! It snowed about 4-5 cm ....  very beautiful, but the Chinese cope with snow similarly to people in London - not particularly well, it does not happen that often - so I am lucky. Here though people were out in force from early one - sweeping away the snow with twig brooms as it fell! My plane takes off in a few hours - if it is clear the view over Mongolia will be spectacular!

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.
