I attended a reception last night hosted by the British Consulate at the request of my bosses Robert and Rachel [left in photo]. It was celebrating 30 years of Chevening Scholarships, which are grants from the British Government to certain foreign students, allowing them to study for a year in Britain. As well as past recipients, they also invited local Kunming leaders in education and business. It was a relaxed evening at a nice outdoor restaurant next to Green Lake, including a rather yummy buffet (I was expecting interminable speeches and finger food).
