Zelf heb ik jarenlang op redelijk hoog niveau getafeltennist, dus ik kan me ongeveer een voorstelling maken van wat Bettine Vriesekoop in haar leven heeft moeten doen en laten voor de sport, om zo hoog te komen als zij is gekomen. Mijn respect voor haar als tafeltennisster is dan ook oneindig groot.

Na haar topsportcarrière heeft Vriesekoop zich ook op maatschappelijk vlak tot een hoog niveau op weten te werken. Zo werd ze, naar eigen zeggen ook voor haar een verrassing, correspondent voor de NRC

Good book, she writes well, all about her 3 years of being a CHina reporter for a Dutch newspaper.
How it is to live in the expat community of Beijing, with a kid in an internat'l school in a country where there are lots of kidnappings of children [one of the topics she researches and reports on].
She was very lucky to have an "ayi" recommended to her who not only spoke English and could cook, clean, take care of the child and everything else connected to the household [standing in long lines to p

Bettine tells us about her life as a foreign correspondent for a big Dutch paper in China, where she stayed for 1000 days. She was an apprentice in the beginning, but fought her way to the status of a very good and expererienced correspondent. She tells us about her initial communication problems, the culture shock, the responsabilities of a single mom and her warm friendships (with Chinese people) that took some time to develop. She was in China during the Olympic Games informs us well about ...more

This is an interesting book about an important period in the recent history of China. Bettine Vriezekoop describes the developments in the period that China organised the olympic games. China changes at an astonishing pace. The author also writes about the many difficulties which encounter a woman from a Western European country. A woman, who lives alone with one son and who has to find her way in China as a journalist. No easy task!

Voor iedereen die in China is geïnteresseerd een prettig leesbaar verslag van de tijd die Bettine Vriesekoop daar doorbracht als verslaggeefster voor het NRC. Persoonlijke observaties over de cultuurverschillen tussen Nederland en China worden afgewisseld met informatie over de politieke situatie in de aanloop naar de Olympische Spelen - nog steeds actueel.

Kon me niet echt boeien. Vond bvb. China Road van Rob Gifford van een heel ander niveau.

Ik vond het interessanter om over de sociale onderwerpen te lezen dan over de politieke.
