In the 1980's Rosie Kelly found herself braving the red tape, searing scrutiny and strict oversight of Chinese officials in order to lead bicycle tours in a country only recently open to the west. Mistaken for a Christian missionary, her luggage was searched for contraband Bibles and her tour groups for Playboy and other such evidence of western degenerate behavior. Thirty years later, and twice as old as she was on her first adventure there, Kelly finds herself in China once more: this time to experience the ski slopes of China, solo. What follows is an up and down adventure that, in the course of one day, finds the writer wondering what on earth she's gotten herself into and delighting in the day-to-day victories in struggles ranging from language barriers, transportation nightmares and culinary disbelief. Enjoy her brushes with disaster, her humorous scenarios with incorrect Mandarin inflections leading to strange interpretations and her obvious delight in living life to the fullest in this latest adventure. Her unique circumstances thrust her into varying degrees of the spotlight, and she is welcomed into a world that few ski/snowboard bums get to experience. Snowboarding China is a fascinating account of one woman's adventure with real insight into the changing landscape of what once was a country pining for electricity and TV. She now finds herself riding state-of-the-art heated gondolas and bubble chairlifts. Even those who have never been on a pair of skis or a board, will delight in the intimate style of storytelling and may find her advice and expertise motivation to embark on adventures of their own. In addition to her story, she also includes a list of her daily expenses, packing list and useful websites. A must read! Her first book is entitled Snowboarding Is For Adults. It is a step by step guide for those interested in getting off the couch and on to a snowboard. It's certainly inspirational!
