As a young teenager, Sifu Craig was basically a Sinophile – intensely interested in all things Chinese. He wrote to the local Chinese consulate (at this time there is no consulate representing China in Atlanta), expressing his interest. They were so pleased, as it was a very rare thing at the time and so he was invited to various dinners, sent all sorts of books and whatnot. That would not be the case today.
Today, China is the world’s second largest economy and even invests more each year in renewable power than any other country on earth. It is no longer the ancient mystical wonderland of East Asia that it once was.
