Also Showing 'Love Without A Heart?'

"Love 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!
