Showing 'Love Without A Heart?'
without a heart" is a word-play in Chinese based
on the changes made to "simplify" the 5000
years old ancient Chinese writing, introduced by the
Communist Government after WWII. Through my 3 years
of Travel through the old Silk road; in Sichuan, Tibet,
Nepal, Bhutan, India, I found that the "heart"
that enabled the new Silk Road, culminating in the
East-West fusion of Modern Hong Kong that enables
diversity, innovation, new thoughts and new ideas!
