Nelson Newsletter, October 2022

Here is your NZCFS Nelson October newsletter with details of our next branch meeting on Friday 28 October when we will be able to enjoy each other’s company, share our buffet meal and hear from Jane and Ian Lister with their Lister Luyou: Travels Around China’s Border Regions.
Between 2014 and 2017, Ian and Jane Lister spent several months each year in China while Ian was employed managing the NMIT China programme. When Ian’s work periods were completed, Ian and Jane frequently travelled independently throughout China and around China’s border regions. These areas are inhabited by local peoples with cultures that span the borders and often are subject to tight security regimes.

Their talk will focus on the highlights of travelling across Tibet into Nepal, from Yunan into Vietnam and in Xinjiang along the Tajikistan border towards Pakistan, reflecting on their interactions with local peoples and the challenges of travelling in these high security areas.
Please remember to let Barbara know by Monday 24 October that you will be coming along so that we have accurate numbers for the meal and enough seating available.
We very much look forward to seeing you all there.
