“This interviewing is fun … and also a really great way to meet people!”

And there I was, in leafy downtown Shanghai, sitting outside in the Spring sun, having lunch and a lovely talk with someone I had not met before …

it was like having lunch with a new friend …

but because of the “remit” of “the 99 Project”, which both of us had bought into, it somehow seemed more intimate than a meeting with a “brand new” acquaintance.

Yes, we chatted on for more than 2 hours …. “the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything”, by which time I had learnt an awful lot about this lovely, vibrant woman and had plenty of material to pass on to the writers ….

I’m ready for more !  This interviewing is fun … and also a really great way to meet people !
