EMAILS FROM CHINA [Two Aussie Teachers Far From Home]
LITTLE DID WE KNOW WHAT WE HAD LET OURSELVES IN FOR! These are the emails we sent home to Australia from the two schools in China at which we taught.

THURSDAY'S ORCHID
TEN WORDS HAD SEALED MY FATE. It wasn't until the waves had begun crashing into the stern of the ship, not until the salt spray was covering the decks and the hull was grinding and tearing itself upon the coral reef, not until the killing had started and terror had taken hold that I heard those ten words once more, flung at me by the wind. I cursed George for uttering them, and cursed Cheh Wah [...]
